The congregation of St. Timothy Lutheran Church welcomed their new pastor, Mary Anne Nelson-Loefke during Palm Sunday (April 9) services at the church. Rev. Nelson-Loefke, who has lived in Western New York for 11 years, was originally from the plains of South Dakota, growing up in a farming community. She graduated from a little high school in Springfield, South Dakota with a graduating class of 33, and went on to attend Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD where she completed two master's degrees, one in Theatre and one in Music, Applied Voice.
For the next 8 years, Rev. Nelson-Loefke pursued a career in acting and singing, performing in clubs and regional theatres across the Midwest. She also studied acting, dance and voice in New York City.
"In 1984, I finally answered a call that God had been pursuing me with for over 13 years. I entered the Masters of Divinity program at Luther-Northwestern Seminary (now Luther Seminary) in St. Paul, MN," she said. "During the years I had developed a love for urban ministry, working with inner city children in Cleveland, Minneapolis and St. Louis. I had also worked with Native American high school students at a Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) school in Flandreau, SD. Although I had a general seminary education, I was very much interested in multi-cultural ministry. My internship was at a large center/inner city church in Milwaukee, WI. I thought that I would end up in a multi-cultural setting. God had other plans, however. My first call was to a large middle-class congregation comprised of members who farmed or worked at the Mayo Clinic and IBM in Rochester, MN. When I left, there were 3,200 members at St. John's. My role was as Youth and Family Pastor. I supervised two lay professionals who worked in Youth Ministry and Christian Education," she said.
"My husband, Bill, and I moved to Niagara Falls in 1994 where I took a call to St. Paul Lutheran Church. I remained in that position for 10 years. The last two years of my tenure, my husband had become ordained, and he and I served St. Paul Zion and Calvary Lutheran Churches in team ministry." Rev. Nelson-Loefke said.
In June of 2004, she became the Intentional Interim Pastor of First Lutheran Church in Jamestown, NY. She has also served as a very part-time member of the Synod Staff with Bishop Lee Miller and presently with Bishop Marie Jerge. She has served in the capacity of Program and Ministry Consultant for Youth Ministry and presently serves as Program and Ministry Consultant for Evangelism.
The new pastor and her husband have been married for almost 16 years. Bill continues to serve Calvary Lutheran and Zion Lutheran Churches in Niagara Falls. They are the parents of Hannah, 12, and Jonathan, 8. The children attend St. Peter's Lutheran School in Sanborn, NY.
