Intentional Interim Pastor; Pastor Darrell Zimmerman

In every congregation there will be times when members wrestle with their church's identity and ministry. These unique transitions occur after drastic changes such as in our case where we previously had a particularly long pastorate.

Such times of transition are often marked by congregational stress and anxiety hampering ministry and making a fulfilling church experience difficult.

Intentional Interim Ministry allows a congregation to experience different approaches to ministry, and opens eyes to different kinds of pastoral leadership.  It is designed to restore congregational health by offering a safe bridge between challenging times and the selection of the next pastor

Head Elder; Steve Arenz

My wife, Debra, and I were married on September 21, 1996.  We have two sons, two awesome daughter-in-laws, and 7 grandchildren.
We both attended Lutheran churches in our early childhood, and feel the theology presented is correct. My faith to me means I have a wonderful Father who looks after me always. I am blessed to serve Him and those whom He puts before me, and to share Him with those who need to feel His love for us. I would like to share a verse that tells us that our comfort is only in the Lord: 

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
We're here to serve only Him and reflect His love, mercy, forgiveness & grace.

Elder; Nick Stockwell

My wife, Mary, and I were married on June 15, 1991. I have one daughter: Rebekah; one step-daughter: Theresa; two step-sons: Joshus and Matthew; and six grandchildren: Tyler, Katelyn, Amber, Nathan, Ethan, Zachary, and Matthias.
I have lived in Cedar Hill for 20 years, and grew up in Jefferson county. I am an HVAC technican. My second hobby is hunting; rifle, bow and/or black powder. My first hobby is learning and teaching about God and His holy word. I joined Cedar Hill Lutheran in November 1998. It is one of the few churches, I believe, in the area that not only preaches from the Bible, but also practices from the Bible (not man made). It also has a genuine family atmosphere.

Elder; David Krumm

My ministry, as an Elder at Cedar Hill Lutheran Church, is to be a servant of Christ and to our church family through the power of the Holy Spirit and the grace and mercy of our Lord.

My wife, Lori and I were married on September 8, 2012 at CHLC.  I have lived in Jefferson County for most of my life and am a retired Architect.  I was baptized and confirmed a Missouri Synod Lutheran as a child, and take comfort that our doctrine is Biblically correct.  I firmly believe that our faith is strengthened and grows through the Holy Spirit, with regular fellowship, prayer and Bible Study.

Elder; Brian King

I was born, raised and still reside in Dittmer, MO.  Growing up we grew and canned vegetables, raised chickens, cows and pigs, hunted, fished, listened to country music, wore cowboy boots, and went to church every Sunday.  I thank my mother, grandmother, and grandfather for being Christians, who raised me to walk and talk with God.  I married my amazing wife Tracie, August 12, 1995, just 3 years out of high school.  We are blessed to have raised two Christian children and added one son-in-law to our family.  I serve God and my church family here at Cedar Hill Lutheran because it is a place that speaks God's true Word, shows God's love through all the wonderful people, and is a family that cares for each other and our community.  My grandfather, along with other great men of God, started Cedar Hill Lutheran Church years ago, and now God has called me to serve here as an Elder.  I strive to honor God and serve Him daily through the help of the Holy Spirit.
