A Brief History of Reformation Lutheran Church
The roots of “Reformation Lutheran Church” date back to the early 1970s and challenges faced by the Lutheran Church in the United States. A group of concerned Lutherans began attending the Federation of Authentic Lutherans meetings, where they met Rev. Thomas Dudley. They called him to be their pastor and broke ground for the building that still serves Reformation Lutheran Church today. At the time, the congregation was called Grace Lutheran Church, and they joined the Evangelical Lutheran Synod. In the early 1990s, grace faced several challenges. Meanwhile, there was another congregation in the area that did not have its own facility. The two joined together, taking the name Reformation Lutheran Church.
When then Pastor of Reformation, Rev. Walter A. Anderson retired in 2000, the congregation called Rev. Steven Brockdorf to serve them. Pastor Brockdorf was installed on January 7, 2001.
The congregation has strongly promoted Christian schools and mission work both domestic and foreign during its entire history. While Reformation does not currently operate her own school, the congregation supports various Lutheran educational efforts. The congregation continues to support the mission work of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod.
