St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in New Boston installed the Reverend John W. Schwartz as Pastor on Sunday, April 3, 2016.

Rev. Schwartz was ordained into the ministry in 2003 after graduating from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind. His first call was to serve St. Stephen Lutheran in Shelby Michigan from 2003-2007, then called to serve Peace Lutheran Church and School from 2007-2016.

Rev. Schwartz has a rich family history at St. Paul’s with his grandparents, Albert and Lillian Schwartz as former members as well as his father Walter Schwartz and many other aunts, uncles and cousins. He and his wife were former members of St. Paul’s as well in 1982, when their son Christopher was baptized on Reformation Sunday, that same year.

Rev. Schwartz and his wife Susan (Glinski) have been married nearly 37 years, and have been blessed with three children; Chad (Melissa), Chris (Stacey), and Audrey (Micah), and eight grandchildren. Susan is a native of New Boston and lived near St. Paul’s until she was married. The two are excited to begin God’s ministry at St. Paul’s and serve the community of Huron Township.

    I am so happy for Pastor Schwartz has found a new loving community to serve. I was thinking about him today as I remember the journey my ill son, James Russell, was following. God graced us with Pastor John while he was at Peace Lutheran in Warren and have been so grateful for his compassion and guidance. He and his lovely wife, Susan will remain dear to my memories during this difficult time. May God continue to bless them and their lovely family. St. Paul’s has a wonderful pastoral guide.
