God is good …
Our pastor is Jim Lynch, a second-career minister who spent 31 years working on newspapers in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin, the last four while he was pursuing a calling of a higher order. He has been at St. John’s, the first congregation he has served, since Feb. 1, 2011. He will tell anyone who will listen that the community of faith that is St. John’s is a wonderful place to serve.
Pastor Jim graduated from Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago in 2010 and was ordained in March 2011. His passions are preaching and teaching the Word to the faithful of all ages (he was a Sunday school teacher for eight years and leads a weekly Bible study at St. John’s and at St. Catherine Commons in Kenosha), leading worship, bicycling, Harry Potter and the Colts and Cubs. He is married to watercolor artist Cindi Lynch. They are parents to five grown children.
Pastor Jim is a member of the board of the Urban Outreach Center, a faith-based community social agency in Kenosha.
… all the time
