Rev. Gary Koltz, Vacancy Pastor

A person wearing glasses  Description automatically generated with low confidence

Pastor Gary Koltz is a second-career pastor with 4-1/2 years of service at a church in Michigan. At that point he joined the Good Life crew, a creation of the LCMS. The idea was to reach unchurched people through music, games, and family-based activities. The ministry was very successful in Michigan. Gary moved to Florida to expand the ministry here. Unfortunately, Covid hit and his plans were cancelled. Most recently he has done a good bit of preaching at Peace Lutheran Church in Naples, Thrive, and Concordia Kendall (Miami)

Gary is a father of two. One daughter is in college. The other is an active high school student. He serves as full-time water management engineer. Pastor Gary will be available during the summer to meet our needs for Sunday services and for funerals, weddings, and baptisms. 

The call committee believes you will find Pastor Gary very approachable. His preaching style is very relaxed – and he fully accepts our communion procedures.
