News at Saxe Gotha

Simple Black And Turquoise Welcome Instagram Post

We are excited to announce that the congregation has voted to accept the Pastor Nominating Committee's nominee for our new Pastor/Head of Staff!

Welcome Reverend Joel Brantner!

Pastor Joel is currently the Senior Pastor and Head of Staff at Church of the Valley in Apple Valley, CA, where he has served since 2020. He has been an ordained ECO pastor for over nine years, and is currently a member of the Southern California Presbytery Council. He is a gifted preacher, with a strong theological backbone and a style that is expository, relational, and evangelistic. Joel and his wife, Kristin have been married for 27 years. They have two children – their son Asa is 16 years old, and their daughter Anna is 13 years old. Together, they have spent over 20 years in service to the local church while being committed and loving parents, knowing that their first priority of discipleship is with their own children.

Thank you to our PNC for all of their incredible work over the last few months, the Transition Team for their dedication, and to our Session and staff for their support. We would also like to thank everyone who participated in today's meeting and vote.

Please continue to pray Pastor Joel and his family as they undertake the big move to Lexington.
