Our mission at Shepherd of the Mountains is to carry on Christ's mission into the world, loving our neighbors and serving all we meet as we join with other Lutheran Church Missouri Synod congregations in proclaiming the Gospel to the people of Pinetop-Lakeside and Show Low, to the rest of Arizona and the United States, and to the ends of the earth.
Interim Vacancy Pastor, David Kaiser, is a down-to-earth pastor with real life experiences, which he uses in his sermons or during Bible study for easy understanding of teachings and scripture.
People find him easy to talk with; he relates well to issues and concerns.
Always have a willing hand to help someone, you might be the only one that does.

If you have not previously participated in Holy Communion here at Shepherd of the Mountains and wish to do so, please first introduce yourself to our Pastor or one of our elders in order that all those who will commune together and who will share the one bread and the one cup may be assured that we share, as well, the same confession and understanding.
Shepherd of the Mountains Lutheran Church is proud to announce that Pastor Michael Mathews of Faith Lutheran Church in Waldorf, MN has accepted the call to be the Shepherd of our church. He will be moving to our area during the month of January.
