OUR HISTORY

​​​​​​​

Christ Lutheran Church began in October of 1949, meeting first in the school building at Calvary Lutheran, 28th and Sumner streets. The church moved to its present location not long after, and built the first chapel.


The church has been served by four senior pastors over the course of its 70 years of service to our Lord Jesus and the community of Lincoln: Pastor A.G. Ahman (1949-1954), Pastor John Bredehoft (1954-1957), Pastor Charles Reimnitz (1958-1996), and Pastor Luke Schnake (1997 to present).


Our Lord has blessed the ministry of our church over these many years. Additional staff, the many building projects, and many mission and education ministries have happened over these 70 years. The church started very small, but with the Lord’s blessings, we have grown much in these years, and we pray for continued blessings for the future.

LAY LEADERSHIP BOARD (LLB)

Working under what is known as policy-based governance, the nine-member Lay Leadership Board (LLB) meets monthly to receive ministry reports through the Director of Ministries and other staff members. LLB is charged with establishing the critical targets for the congregation and to work closely with the Director of Ministries, to see that they are met. The four critical targets are: to connect people to the Lord Jesus Christ; to connect people to Christ Lutheran Church; to connect people to our staff; to connect members with each other. LLB also approves the ministry budget.
