Pastor Steve Smithberger
Senior Pastor

Pastor Steve Smithberger began his working life as an engineer before receiving a call into ministry. He received his Master of Divinity degree from Trinity Lutheran Seminary in 2002 and has continuously held a call in ordained ministry ever since. He served at Trinity Lutheran Church in Marysville, Ohio as an associate pastor and then at St. John's Lutheran Church in London, Ohio as a solo pastor before receiving his call here at Epiphany in 2012. He has had the privilege of participating in a ministry of renewal in these long standing congregations. Epiphany, having been established in 1924, is actually the youngest congregation that Pastor Steve has served!
