Mt. Pleasant Lutheran Church

Our Pastors

Pastor Beth Ann L. Stone

Pastor Beth Ann Lechtenberger Stone began her ministry as our Senior Pastor in September 2018. She had previously served congregations in Pennsylvania and Nebraska, and as an Assistant to the Bishop in the Upper Susquehanna Synod (north-central PA). Pastor Beth Ann is passionate about connecting with new people, helping us ask deeper questions, and being open to the work of God’s Spirit among us. She graduated from Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio (Master of Divinity) and St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN (BA in Literature), and is originally from Lincoln, Nebraska. Her husband, Karl-John, is also an ELCA pastor. They are the parents of two sons and the humans of one naughty dog.

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.
