Meet Our Pastor
A life-long Lutheran, Pastor Joan Armstrong graduated from Western Illinois University with a B.A. in English and German. For most of her career, she worked in the health insurance claims world, most recently running a successful consulting business until 2003. At that time the still, small voice that had been whispering a call to the ministry of Word and Sacrament raised its volume and she answered.
She graduated from Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio, and was ordained in 2009. She led a church in southwestern Pennsylvania before being called to St. Luke in February of 2014, where she serves with joy and gratitude.
In her spare time, Joan enjoys reading, sewing, and quilting. She loves spending time with her grandchildren and her dog, Roxy.
