The goal of our staff along with the church council is to help foster a friendly, welcoming environment that enables us to achieve our mission and have a positive impact on others. Council and staff members at Peace Lutheran listen to ideas, suggestions and concerns, while developing and implementing a strategic plan and vision for the congregation that aligns with our mission.
Pastor Stuart Dornfeld:
“Here are some things people have said about me:
…a family man, a jokester, a kid at heart, a cartoon lover, and serious when necessary.
A kid at heart with a serious message
…a kind, welcoming , transparent, relatable man with a fabulous ability to insert humor where appropriate to share the word of God! A true inspiration.
…a man in love with God, a man in prayerful relationship with God, which then manifests itself into a love of the world.
Mr. Rogers 2.0
…focus on kindness toward others…
A cross between George Lucas and Billy Graham? Devoted husband and father with child-like enthusiasm for both delivering God’s message and playing with Legos.
