John Kunze

SENIOR PASTOR
 
I’m honored to have served at Messiah since August of 2000 and have been an ordained pastor since June 23, 1996.  
 
I was born and raised in Orlando, Florida, where my father served as a Lutheran Pastor. I received a BA in Psychology from Lenoir-Rhyne College in Hickory, NC (1992), and a Masters of Divinity at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Mo (1996).  While at Seminary, I joined the united States Navy as a Chaplain candidate and served from 1992-1998..
 
I’m blessed to be married to my wife, Beth. We have a daughter (Emily) and a son (Taylor)
