Our Leadership

Meet the folks who keep our church thriving.

Rev. Dana Lockhart


Pastor Dana Lockhart is a sinner (you all probably knew that already). But more importantly, he is a sinner redeemed by Jesus Christ. Of all the things that excite him about Faith Lutheran, nothing stands beyond his experience of hearing the Gospel at this church over the years through excellent preaching, reverent worship, and beautiful music. He hopes his service as pastor builds on this faithful legacy.
