Pastor Tom Struck has been an ELCA pastor for as long as the ELCA has been in existence. (Google it :o). He served as assistant pastor at Calvary Evangelical Lutheran in Clarkston, Michigan (1988-1994) getting to know a bit of the Midwest. Returning to family, Tom, his wife, two children, a guinea pig, and a dog, came to Newberg, OR to serve as pastor of Joyful Servant. After 20 years there, he answered the call to chaplaincy and is now a staff chaplain at Providence Willamette Falls Medical Center in Oregon City. Wanting to support leaders in the church, Tom is a level one ELCA coach and on his way to joining Pr. Mary in being a Courage and Renewal facilitator. Tom loves God’s creation and promoting healing and personal growth.
