Pastor Marty Mably

Pastor Mably is a second-career pastor, having obtained a B.A. Degree in Music Business in 1992 and following it up with an M.A. In Arts Administration. He was employed by Rochester Civic Music in Rochester, MN from 1994-1998 as the Marketing and Fund Development Coordinator.  In an example of how God leads each of us and works through very difficult circumstances, he left his career in the arts to become Director of Youth and Family ministry at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Bloomington, IL. (Ask him to tell you the story!) After serving in that role for almost five years, he entered the seminary in 2003 at Concordia, St. Louis, receiving his M. Div. Degree in 2007. He was ordained and installed as Associate Pastor at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church and School in Springfield IL on July 8, 2007. In 2010, he was led to accept the call to serve as sole pastor at Lord of Glory Lutheran Church in Elk River, MN. He served there until he was called to St. Matthews in the spring of 2023. 

“But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.” (2 Corinthians 2:14)
