Greetings in the name of Jesus! I am appointed by the Bishop of the Florida-Bahamas Synod to serve as a "bridge" to the path and leadership God is providing. 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. Currently, I work full-time as a Family Counselor at Hanley Center at Origins in West Palm Beach. I will be at Zion on a part-time basis. Hours and other information will be available in the near future.
May God bless us as we journey together!
Pastor David E. Potter
