Rev. Dr. James Prothro, Pastor

Pastor Jim has been a part of our ministry starting with his ordination on December 4, 2016. Raised in different denominations in several different states, he was led to the Lutheran church by a campus ministry and was confirmed in the fall of 2005. He graduated from Concordia University Texas and went on to Concordia Seminary. While in seminary, he also completed a degree in ancient Greek and Latin ("Classics") at Washington University in St. Louis, and after that he received a PhD from the University of Cambridge studying the history and theology of the New Testament. While in seminary he met and married his dear wife Ashley, who served as a deaconess for the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod in elder care in St. Louis and then as a missionary during their time in England. They have two daughters: Sophia (2014) and Heidi (2017). Pastor Jim loves music, stories, and writing and reading.
