About Pastor David

David Viles Pastor, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church

Greetings in Christ, I am David Viles, Pastor at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Lohman, Missouri.

I have lived in several places around the United States and traveled a great deal in Europe, the Caribbean and of course the United States. But my home for the past 47 years has been in Arkansas. I am married to my best friend, Donna since 1981 and we have two children and five grandchildren. Donna and I now live in Lohman, Missouri where we feel right at home with our one year old Shih Tzu, Brandy.

I graduated from Wartburg Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa after having worked in Manufacturing for over 30 years. I was blessed to be called by God to another vocation doing His will in serving the church and it has been a great joy for the past few years. My first Call was a small rural church in Arkansas and I am now blessed to be serving the wonderful congregation of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church.

My prayer is to walk with the congregation of St. Paul’s as we journey together through spiritual enrichment and enlightenment while discovering the joys of God’s grace and responding to that gift through the love of our neighbors. I seek to reach out to the communities, towns and Jefferson City to welcome all people to St. Paul’s church. I welcome you as sisters and brothers in Christ, one family made in God’s image.

Please feel free to invite me to your homes, out to lunch, email (davidviles@cox.net) or call (M: 479-670-2000) and make an arrangement to meet me at St. Paul’s so we can know one another and begin a relationship in Christ’s name.
