Our Co-Lead Pastors
Rev. Dr. Michelle Carlson and Rev. Dr. Rick Carlson
We are grateful to be called to serve First Lutheran Church and the Kearney community. We have a passion for preaching and teaching. Our goal is to be the Spirit’s conduit so that people can experience the fullness of God’s grace through Word and Sacrament, while being empowered to live out their baptismal vocation in daily life.
