Pastor Lucas Witt

Rev. Witt at his Installation Service, Dec. 15, 2019.
Pastor Lucas Witt is excited to be back as a witness to Jesus in Baltimore, where he served from 2012-2013 as Vicar at Immanuel.  He also served with St. Thomas Lutheran Church, and the Lutheran Mission Society.  Here he confirmed his passion for this specific ministry, especially enjoying the opportunity to discover Jesus teachings with others, relate timeless truths to children, and seek a brighter future for people who are marginalized by society. Immanuel has primarily called Pastor Witt to assist Immanuel in reaching the city of Baltimore for the sake of Jesus Christ, in hopes that we may seek and guide more people into eternal life. 

To Lucas, Baltimore has been "Home" ever since he left, but that wasn't always the case.  Lucas was raised on a family farm outside Manning, Iowa until he graduated high school.  After that he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science at Buena Vista University and his Master of Science degree of Information Security at Iowa State University.  Following two years of employment with the National Security Agency, he enrolled at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis.  There he met his wife Sylvia and they were married in 2013.  He served as pastor at St. Peter's Lutheran Church in St. Paul, Minnesota from 2014-2017, and then accepted the opportunity to be Chaplain and Bible Teacher for grades 6-8 at Oakland Christian School in Auburn Hills, Michigan from 2018-2019.  

Lucas and Sylvia Witt have been blessed by God with the responsibility to raise in the ways of Jesus one son and two daughters: Nazareth, Lilac, and Zipporah.  The Witt family spend time together running around outside, going to the YMCA, visiting museums, coloring, singing, and inviting neighbors into the home for meals and fellowship (Just email me with a night that works for you!).  Lucas personally enjoys being active indoors and outdoors, meeting people, laughing, and playing the trumpet.  

Lucas is hoping to partner with leaders who seek great change by serving others first.  Feel free to contact him to discuss your ideas for how we might be able to partner and shine a brighter light on Baltimore.
