Pastor Joan Gunderman

I’m Pastor Joan Gunderman, originally from a small town outside of Chicago, IL.  After receiving a BA degree in English and Speech from Capital Univ. (Lutheran college in Columbus, OH), I later began study at what is now Trinity Lutheran Seminary, also in Columbus.  Having served in many settings (rural, small town, suburb, city, campus, Ass’t. to the Bishop/So. Ohio), I am delighted now to be pastor with the good people of Faith.  Married for 37 years (to the same man!), with 2 grown children & 2 grandchildren…so far.

Hi, I’m Janis. I am the Parish Secretary for Faith Lutheran Church, Swanburg and have been doing this job since November of 1978. We publish a newsletter once a month and welcome short, appropriate articles. I am also the organist and have been playing since December of 1963. Music has always been an important part of this congregation and our current choir is lots of fun.

Hi, I’m Julie Moser Bergman and director of Faith’s choir.  I’m happy to have found a way to combine my love of music with the opportunity to enhance our worship services.
