Rev. Jeffrey Proctor
Pastor Proctor was born and raised in Southern California. He is a graduate of the University of California (Riverside, CA) and Concordia Theological Seminary (Fort Wayne, IN). Following a delayed vicarage (i.e. internship) in Elizabeth, NJ, he was called to St. Paul Lutheran Church in the spring of 2015. He was ordained into the Office of the Holy Ministry on Sunday, August 9, 2015.
Pastor Proctor is happily married to Joan, a registered nurse at a local hospital. They have five children: Christian, Olivia, Nigel, Fiona, and Siwan. After spending several years in the Midwest and one year on the East Coast, the Proctor family is once again glad to call the Southwest home. That is, all of them except Christian, who decided to stay in Fort Wayne, IN.
Pastor Proctor loves the Gospel. He loves the Good News that poor, miserable sinners are forgiven and declared righteous by grace alone through faith alone on account of Jesus Christ alone. That is why Pastor Proctor is joyfully a confessional Lutheran. He loves the symbols of the Lutheran church, her understanding of God’s Word as Law and Gospel, her sacramental theology, her rich hymnody, and her celebration of the historic liturgy. He is grateful to serve the saints at St. Paul Lutheran Church, where as a "servant of Christ and steward of the mysteries" he gets to speaks oracles of God and deliver God's good gifts to His people (1 Corinthians 4:1; 1 Peter 4:10-11).

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
"It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by His own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.
(1 Peter 3:13-16)
