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 vicarage (i.e. internship) in Elizabeth, NJ, he was called to Saint 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 on the East Coast, the Proctor family is once again happy to call the Southwest home.
Pastor Proctor was raised in the Baptist church. He encountered Lutheranism during a period of “youth group hopping” with friends in high school. After a beloved pastor introduced him to the proper distinction between Law and Gospel, there was no going back. Pastor Proctor is a confessional Lutheran by conviction. This makes him something of a zealot for the theology and practice of historic Lutheranism. He is humbled and grateful to serve the Lord Jesus Christ and deliver His good gifts to the holy ones at Saint Paul Lutheran Church.
Would you like to speak with Pastor Proctor? He’ll be more than happy to talk with you about the Bible, Lutheran theology, the Liturgy, or even why Smoking Popes is the greatest band of all time.

"So we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We beseech you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God."
2 Corinthians 5:20
"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.
