Lutheran Church | Hillsboro, Illinois
hearts + doors wide open
Our church's staff supports the ministry of all member disciples at St. Paul's. The apostle Paul saw his role as one of equipping the saints for their work of sharing the good news. Although our roles and activities differ, we serve the same purpose and are there for one another.
Pastor Munker was born in Germany where he was baptized in the Lutheran church and came to faith in his youth. During a seminary exchange in the US, he met his wife Cynthia. She is pastoring at Mt. Zion Lutheran Church in Litchfield. Pastor Munker is excited about sharing the invitation to meet and follow Jesus. He is leading the "flock" of Jesus at St. Paul's in our shared worship, learning, and outreach.

Our new choir director has been active behind the scenes to work on our music program and has shared her own musical talents for worship services. She has led Bell Choir and Vocal Choir at St. Paul's wonderfully in the time since the choirs have resumed. We are grateful for her generous involvement and passion to serve our church.
Marina Mondragon is our Administrative Assistant in the church office, and excited to be a member of the ministry team at St. Paul's. She greets you cheerfully in person or on the phone, and she is ever helpful and skillful in doing everything with dedication to the Lord. Marina's family has been attending St. Paul's for over ten years.
