Come Worship with Us!


Please welcome Zion’s new “stated supply” Pastor the Rev. John Largen!  He also currently serves as the “Chaplain for the Transition” at our Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg.  Until recently, Pastor John served St. John’s Church, Littlestown, PA as its intentional interim pastor.  As our “stated supply,” he will be responsible for presiding and preaching on Sundays, as well as for Christmas Eve and Holy Week, until a new pastor is called.

Pastor John is a native Virginian and served his first call in the Shenandoah Valley near New Market, VA.  He then served for twenty-six years on the staff of Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary, Columbia, SC, most recently as the “Pastor to the Seminary Community for Spiritual Formation.”  He holds a Doctor of Ministry in Spiritual Direction.  In 2012, Pastor John moved to Gettysburg where his wife, Kristin, is Professor of Systematic Theology and Dean of the Seminary.  Together they are the proud parents of a handsome but willful Jack Russell Terrier named Henry.

Pastor John has special interests in American history, bluegrass music, classic cars, and visiting family in Sweden.  He looks forward to becoming well acquainted with the folks at Zion.

Come for Sabbath Rest each Sunday that you might be refreshed in the Lord Jesus Christ & His Spirit, resting from the cares and concerns of your life, in the hope and presence of God.
