Pastor John Beck has come to us as a vacancy Pastor, his plans are to be ministering to us through the end of December, at that time he will decide whether to stay on through January 2016. Pastor Beck is a 1985 graduate of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary. He married his wife, Cindy, in 1981 and they were blessed with three children (Aaron, Sarah, and Leah) during the years at the Seminary. In 2001 they adopted a 4 year old (Annie). The oldest three are married and the Becks enjoy 7 grandchildren with number 8 on the way. Pastor Beck has served 27 years in the ministry with congregations in Alaska, Washington state, Wisconsin and most recently in Reno, NV. Due to health reasons, he had to give up his congregation in NV and retire. Thankfully, his health has improved to the point that he is able to minister to us on a part time schedule. He and Cindy have settled in Crossville TN where they attend Ascension Lutheran in Crossville. Cindy has spent most of her adult life teaching: Lutheran elementary school, homeschool, Sunday school, children's choirs and piano lessons. She is enjoying the quite life of an empty-nester homemaker. Pastor and Cindy enjoy walking together and are thankful for this opportunity to serve Prince of Peace, and enjoying our mild winter weather.
