"Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith." -Hebrews 13:7
Seth grew up in Memphis, Tennessee. Though baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod, it was not until 2003 at the age of 16 that the Holy Spirit awakened him to the glorious truths of the Gospel. Understanding the righteousness and justice of God for the first time also revealed in a new way his own sin and the judgment he deserved. Forsaking his sin, and calling upon the God of mercy, Seth found Jesus Christ to be the perfect Savior. "...for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call upon Him" (Romans 10:12).
When God called Seth into fellowship with His Son, He also called him into Gospel ministry. In September of 2016, Oakridge Community Church called Seth as Associate Pastor. In July, 2019, Seth began ministering in Oakridge as Interim Lead Pastor.
Seth and his beautiful wife, Jaime, have been married for 9 years, and the Lord has granted to them the blessing of 4 children.
Loren is grateful for the Lord's grace in drawing him to Himself, bringing new life and the gift of faith in his teen years, and then progressively and continuingly revealing more of his need to be saved from sin and transformed by God's Spirit. He is also grateful for the gift of union with his beloved Carol since 1985, and the further gifts of three cherished sons, two lovely daughters-in-law, and two incredibly precious granddaughters, He is thankful for the countless opportunities to strive for godly impact in the lives of believers and unbelievers through nearly 30 years as a Christian counselor. His desire since being appointed elder in June of 2019 is to serve in the body as Paul spoke of behaving in the world "with simplicity and godly sincerity not by earthly wisdom but by the grace of God" (2 Cor. 1:12).
