Pastor Clayton has served as pastor of Zion Lutheran Church since August, 2005. He loves the warm, caring, family-friendly atmosphere at Zion, and the vibrant, faithful worship life of the congregation! When he is not busy with parish work, Pastor Clayton loves spending time with his family—his wife, Lori, and their six children, Johnathan, Matthew, Nathaniel, Abigail, Isaiah, and Samuel! In his other spare time, Pastor Clayton enjoys music, traveling, reading, photography, model railroading, cooking (and eating!), and working on advanced degrees. Above all, Pastor Clayton rejoices in the love God has poured out upon him and on all of us, and gives thanks for the opportunity to show and share God’s love with others as the pastor of Zion.
