The Call of our Senior Pastor

On Sunday, January 10 our congregation approved the extension of a call to Rev. John Hierlinger as our senior pastor. Pastor John has accepted and looks forward to beginning his ministry with our congregation and joining us in our Gateway of Faith mission. 

Pastor John is a graduate of Luther College (B.A. in elementary education and teaching, ’00) and Luther Seminary (M.Div, ’08). He served as Director of Middle School Youth and Young Adult Ministries at St. Philip’s Lutheran Church in Fridley, MN (’01-’06) and then received a call from St. Philip’s to serve as their associate pastor (’08-’12). Pastor John has been serving at his current congregation, St. Timothy’s Lutheran Church of Columbia Heights, MN since 2012 as a solo pastor. 

Pastor John is married to his wife Jen and they have three children – Maddie, Sam and Will. As he begins his ministry with us, we will have many opportunities to learn more about him, his family and his many pastoral gifts. 

Pastor John’s first Sunday in worship at GA will be February 28th. Please mark your calendars for this Sunday as our faith community warmly welcomes John and his family into our GA family.
