Christ the King Lutheran Church (Waseca, MN) – Pastor

The Big Picture

Christ the King Lutheran Church (ctkwaseca.org) is seeking to call a strong orthodox Lutheran Pastor to help guide and lead our congregation in living out our Confession of Faith.

The Church

Committed to giving back to the Lord, we tithe our general fund offerings monthly to local or worldwide missions as we are led by the Spirit.  We have an active Sunday School Program, teen youth program, Vacation Bible School and Fall Confirmation.  We have eight active Bible Study Groups, a 15 member Choir, dedicated musicians, and active group of Quilters and strong Worship, Evangelism, Fellowship and Property Committees.  

     Our regular worship schedule includes a liturgical 8:30 am service and a 10:45 contemporary service each Sunday, and full Advent, Lenten and Easter Week schedules.  Our services are taken out of the Lutheran Book of Worship and can be described as either Traditional or Contemporary Styles.  

The Community

Our congregation is located in Waseca, MN. Waseca is known for our comfortable and friendly atmosphere.  It is just one hour south of all the big-city conveniences of the Twin Cities metropolitan area, located 13 miles west of Owatonna and 25 miles east of Mankato at the crossroads of State Highway 13 and US 14.  Waseca offers big city conveniences with the advantages of small town living.  Waseca is a vibrant community of 9,193 people comfortably nestled between two beautiful lakes. 

     Recreational opportunities abound as well. We have fifteen beautiful city parks offering a variety of activities, including picnic areas, volleyball, tennis, and basketball courts, ball fields, playground equipment and biking and hiking trails.

The Candidate

Incorporated on December 17, 2009, we are an Independent Lutheran Congregation free of all Synodical or Associational affiliation.  Further, we intend to hold ourselves and our called Pastor accountable to the following:


Christ the King Lutheran Church of Waseca accepts without exception all the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments as a whole, and in all their parts, as the divinely inspired, revealed, and inerrant Word of God, and submits to this as the only infallible authority in all matters of faith and life

We accept without reservation and declare adherence to the Symbolic books of the Lutheran Faith as the presentation and explanation of the pure doctrine of the Word of God and a summary of our faith as an Independent Lutheran Church. This congregation accepts, confesses and recognizes the following as normative for its theology:  The ancient ecumenical Creeds:  the Apostolic, the Nicene, and the Athanasian; The unaltered Augsburg Confession; The Book of Concord including the Apology of the Augsburg Confession; The Smalcald Articles;   Luther’s Small and Large Catechisms;  and the Formula of Concord
