Mt. Pleasant Lutheran Church

Our Pastors

Rev. William Mains

Pastor Bill Mains joined MPLC on July 1, 2017. He will be with MPLC during this time of transition as we seek to call a permanent pastor or pastors. Pastor Bill is a recently retired ELCA pastor with more than 45 years of ministry experience.  He was the pastor at Trinity Lutheran Church in South Milwaukee for the last 20 years.  He lives in Racine with his wife, Barb, and they have 12 children, four of whom are still at home.   Pastor Bill will work under the direction of the council and Pastor Krista to help with pastoral care, preaching, worship leadership, adult education and more.  We are happy with the addition of Pastor Bill to our ministry team.


Pastor Krista Zimmerman

Pastor Krista Zimmerman joined the MPLC ministry team on August 1, 2014 as Pastor for Youth and Family Ministry. Pastor Krista is a graduate of the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago and has served as the pastor of United Lutheran Church in Rockford, Illinois until her call to Mount Pleasant Lutheran Church. Krista is excited about connecting youth and their families with the whole family of God at MPLC. She has an interest in Social Ministry and has focused some of her education on Urban Studies. She comes to MPLC with her miniature dachshund, Herman. We are so glad she is here to share her gifts with this congregation.
