We are blessed here at Ascension to have a great staff within our church family whose tireless service mean so much.
Ken has a long association with our church family, he became the synodically authorized minister in 2017 and was installed as the Ascension Lutheran Church Pastor in 2018 bringing with him a contagious passion for ministry. He had been the chaplain at ChurchHill Downs in Louisville as part of a nearly 27 year career in Racetrack Chaplaincy. Ken is married to Natalie. They have a daughter Bethany, and one granddaughter, Charlotte.
There is a jazz pianist in the house! When Todd is not directing the music for worship he teaches jazz piano at Bellarmine University.
Well known as a distinguished performer in the local community and beyond for his exceptional talent and musical diversity, Todd brings the rich history of our Christian heritage and blends it with contemporary styling that provides for an engaging worship environment for all.
Rachel, you really do so much to keep everything running so well. Many thanks . . . We could not get by without the blessing of your service and dedication.
At the age of 24, I am the newest and youngest member of the staff here at Ascension. With a double major in Psychology and Philosophy, I graduated from Morehead State University where I served nearly all of my years on ministry team at the Methodist Student Center, spending my summers counseling at Lutheran Hills. I recently married my wonderful wife Sam in May of 2021. I look forward to following the Holy Spirit as we all work together as a body to continually breathe renewed life into the youth program here at Ascension!
