We invite you to a place where you can grow stronger in your faith, surrounded by . . .

Fellowship. Love. Caring. Sharing. And Laughter.

Our Mission

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.

Our Pastor

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.


If you happen to miss a service or would like to read previous sermons, we have a collection of sermons available for you.

Online Giving

Always have a willing hand to help someone, you might be the only one that does.
