Translating God's Word for a new generation
Concordia welcomes Rev. Chris Paavola, the pastor at All Nations Church in University City. Chris planted this church a couple years ago and has progressively woven it into the fabric of the U City community. Chris is the brother of our Christ Community Lutheran School (CCLS) preschool director, Angela Shirley, and comes from a long line of Finnish Lutherans. His immersion into this very diverse urban community, the stories he shares, and the Scripture he proclaims will be a blessing for our Concordia ministry.
