Meet Our Leaders

All the lay leaders of St. John’s are elected by the voters of the congregation. Elections are held annually, but for only half the positions to avoid a complete leadership turnover. All the leaders of St. John’s strive to set godly examples of Christian living for the congregation and seek to serve with the self-sacrificing, humble love of Jesus.

St. Johns Lutheran Church and School, Westland MI

For over 135 years, St. John’s has been serving the people of Westland. We are a group of imperfect people united by a perfect God. We come from many different walks of life, but have been given the same mission. Jesus has shown us God’s love and we want to share that love with the world.
