Welcome to Zion!

A Message from our Pastor

Greetings in the name of Jesus!  I am appointed by the Bishop of the Florida-Bahamas Synod to serve and I look forward to preparing with you for what the Lord God has planned for our ministry and the mission of Zion.  

A little bit about me:  I have been a pastor of the Lutheran Church in America since 1985, which became part of the ELCA.  I grew up in Minnesota, attending Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter and Luther Northwestern Theological Seminary in St. Paul.  I have served as a chaplain for two VA Medical Centers in Minnesota, a spiritual care counselor at Hazelden in Center City, MN and Naples, FL as well as a pastor in Worthington and St. Cloud, MN and Lake Park, FL. I have also been an interim pastor in Pompano Beach, Palm City, and Palmetto Bay, FL.  Until being appointed by the Bishop, I worked full-time as a Family Counselor at Hanley Center at Origins in West Palm Beach.  

May God bless us as we journey together!

Pastor David E. Potter
