Staff and Leadership
We Are The Church Together
No one person can do the job of the church alone. Leadership in the church is more than a role in the church- it is an avenue to engagement in the church. Leaders are the listeners, encouragers, and inspirers. Leadership is not just a weekend position, it continues through the week.
CLC welcomes Interim Pastor Tom Slater
My name is Pastor Tom Slater. I grew up in Northern New Jersey and attended Concordia College in Bronxville, New York. I went to Gettysburg Seminary in Pennsylvania. My first call was to Christ Lutheran in Loganville, Pa. My second call was to Faith Lutheran in Jacksonville, Fl.
In 1996, I became the pastor of Christus Victor in Naples, Fl. And served there for 26 years.
I live in downtown Fort Myers with Sherry, my wife of 40 years.
I look forward to serving alongside of the people of Christ, Cape Coral as we seek to follow God's will for our lives.
To be a synod parish deacon, you must complete a required course of theological study, a required practicum and are approved by the bishop to serve a local congregation at the authority of the pastor. This ministry is a volunteer ministry. They bring to the congregation their gifts and passions, being shared to the benefit of our congregation and the community.
The nurses assist with healthcare assessments and decisions when requested or needed. This means that when it is necessary, they will accompany a member to a doctor’s appointment. Our Parish Nurses work with our Pastor, local hospitals, social service agencies and the community for the wellness of our congregation.
The members of the Church Council are the trustees who act on behalf of the church membership. The congregational council has the responsibility for ensuring fulfillment of the church’s mission and the legal accountability for its operations.
