Rev. Lance R. Lackore


I enjoy working with people to serve the needs of those around our Community. I was educated at Augustana College, and at both Bethany and Chicago Theological Seminaries. My Father was ordained as a Methodist Pastor, I was baptized in that tradition, but shortly after my baptism returned to serve Congregational Churches, as the United Church of Christ was completing its formation.  I enjoy the movement of the Spirit in Worship.  I enjoy time in the creation as an outdoors enthusiast. I love children, and share five adult children and a new grandchild, with my wife Mary.
