RMSrandypabstPastor Randy Pabst was ordained in 1976 and is a native to the Rocky Mountain ELCA Synod. He has served congregations in Colorado Springs, Cheyenne, Fort Collins, and Cupertino, California. He has also led a “mission start” in California prior to Cupertino. In 2012 Pastor Randy retired and began training to become an Intentional Interim Pastor for the ELCA. He has just completed his first assignment as an Interim in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Along with his experience, Pastor Randy brings a wealth of knowledge as he has earned a Doctorate in Ministry. Pastor Pabst has been married for 38 years to his wife, Susan. They have two grown daughters who live in the Denver metro area. Pastor Randy and Susan reside in Broomfield, and he will commute to Longmont while he is serving our congregation. Some of Pastor Randy’s hobbies are golfing and playing the guitar as well as enjoying the beautiful Rocky Mountains in our backyard.

We look forward to working with Pastor Randy as our interim process as we continue discover who we are as a congregation and begin our search for a new senior pastor.
