Pastor Tom Rhodes

Along with wife, Dana, and son, Matthew, we’ve lived in California, Oregon, Washington, Indiana, Minnesota and now Missouri (though Matthew is now in the Navy and ‘seeing the world’).  I’ve been schooled at Lutheran Bible Institute (1984 – now Trinity College in Everett, WA) and Concordia Theological Seminary (2004 – Fort Wayne, IN), among others.  I’ve worked for companies ranging from a car wash to the nation’s largest retailer, from being a milkman to being an advertising account manager.  I served as Pastor to Mt Olive Lutheran Church for 9 years in Folsom, California, before receiving and accepting the call to serve here at Zion Lutheran Church in Bolivar beginning February 2013.  Enough about me – let us know about you.  Come and visit us and tell us your story.  I can tell you from my own experience, the people of Zion Lutheran Church, are welcoming, warm and godly people who are Hearing, Sharing and Living the Gospel.  If you can’t come by, contact me at … Pastor Tom Rhodes or PO Box 5, 600 East Aldrich Road, Bolivar, MO 65613 (417) 326-5506
