Our Pastor

Pastor Timothy Gall

Installed July 2, 2017

Greetings in Christ!

I grew up as a pastor's kid in Effingham, Illinois, where my father is still an LCMS pastor at St. John's.  After high school I attended Lakeland Community College for an associates degree before going to Eastern Illinois University to earn my bachelor's degree.

I attended Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, as did my father, and completed the Masters of Divinity program while living there on campus.  During my third year, I completed my vicarage assignment at Faith Lutheran Church in Tullahoma, Tennessee.  In my fourth and final year at the seminary, my wife (Tara) and I were married at St. John's before taking my final classes to graduate.

Bethlehem prayerfully and thoughtfully extended at Call to me at the beginning of 2017, and it was here that I was ordained and installed to begin ministry as a pastor.

I thank everyone here at Bethlehem from my heart for all the care and support you have given to me.  I pray and hope that through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can achieve great things together for Bethlehem to the glory of God.

In His Service,

-Rev. Timothy Gall
