"Christ-centered worship, proclaiming the Gospel, and nurturing all into God's family."
Rev. John Armstrong was called by God to serve Grace Lutheran Church in 1997. He loves being a pastor and his favorite pastime is to learn, discuss and share the Word of God with others. Next to his faith in Christ, the greatest gift God has given him is his wife, Harriet. God has greatly blessed their marriage with two daughters, Anna Jonnette and Ivana Harriet.

Although raised Lutheran, Pastor Armstrong's spiritual journey has taken him from skepticism regarding the Christian faith, to Fundamentalism, to Calvinism, to finally rediscovering the biblical and Christ-centered nature of the Lutheran faith. He loves discussing Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Bible with anyone who has questions.

He holds degrees from Purdue University (B.S., 1976) and from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis (Master of Divinity, 1986, and Master of Sacred Theology in New Testament Studies, 1990).

Director of Youth and Family Ministry
Tim began his service at Grace in August 2002. Previously he has served in congregations in Colorado Springs, Colorado and Brea, California. He graduated from the DCE program at Christ College (now Concordia University) Irvine, California in 1992. Knowing that parents will always have the greatest influence on their children, his goal is to empower families in their God-given role to nurture the Christian faith in the home.

Tim was born in Detroit, Michigan; raised in Detroit, and Hillman, (MI), New Port Richey (Florida) and Ann Arbor (MI). After attending University of Arizona in Music Education, he transferred to the Christ College DCE program (ask him why). Still having a love for music, He met his wife Lori (our Director of Youth and Children's Music) playing handbells together at Christ College. The two of them will still play for worship on occasion as well. They have two daughters attending White Creek Lutheran School. The family all love to camp. Tim also enjoys running, and assisting as a cantor in the worship at Grace.
