As we continue to celebrate Gloria Dei’s 150th Anniversary we reflect on the ministry of pastors who have served at Gloria Dei.  We also celebrate those members of Gloria Dei who have been called to God’s ministry.

Who were the first pastors who were called to Gloria Dei Lutheran Church? In this video you may learn about our church history through our Gloria Dei’s pastors from 1870-1961.  There will be stories, mystery and great pictures! 

Gloria Dei has had 15 members (that we are aware of) who were called to ordained service.  Some of them have sent an audio or video greeting which are available below to view/listen to.
