Pastor David Rolf

Rev. David M. Rolf was born in Hannibal, MO and baptized at Zion Lutheran Church in Palmyra, MO.  Shortly after birth, he moved to a small town in Clintonville, WI and grew up in a strong Christian home.  He attended St. Martin’s Lutheran grade school where he was confirmed at the age of fourteen.  At the age of sixteen, he moved to St. Louis where he completed his high school education at Lutheran High School South.  While attending Maryville University, David met his wife Cindy and after two short years of dating, they were married at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Arnold, MO.

             Pastor Rolf began working in the finance industry at a young age.  He worked for several banking and loan institutions such as Bank of America, J.P. Morgan Chase, and West Community Credit Union.   Upon completion of his Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from Lindenwood University, he continued in the finance sector working for MasterCard International as a Global Learning and Development Specialist.  He also worked as a Financial Associate with Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.  It was during his years at Thrivent where David realized a need to help people with things beyond financial matters.  This led him to serve the Lord’s church in more than just a part-time capacity, and he attended Concordia Seminary in St. Louis where he received his Masters of Divinity in May of 2015.

              After getting married, Pastor and Cindy continued to live in St. Louis and will be celebrating their seventeenth wedding anniversary in August.  Their family began to grow with the birth of their first daughter, Jordan Elizabeth, in 2003, then in 2006, they had their second daughter, Julia Jean.  Pastor and Cindy, along with their two daughters, have maintained an active presence in the church and in the Lutheran education system where most of their free time is spent serving others.

I was born and raised in Whittier, California.  My grade school was Trinity Lutheran School, a Public High School, and came to Missouri to attend St. Paul's College in Concordia, Missouri. That is where I met my husband of 45 years.  We have 3 children, 7 grandchildren (of which 3 are triplet girls), and one great-granddaughter.

Places I have worked are: Mutual Ticket Agency in Los Angeles; Community Blood Bank receptionist in KC; ABC Bookkeeping and Tax Service; H&R Block;  Internal Revenue Service.

I retired from IRS as Supervisor, January 31, 2014, after 28 years. I received the Gallatin award for service.  

I am currently employed as Church Secretary with Peace Lutheran Church.

I have been a member of the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod my entire life. I have seen many changes.  Change is good when you accept the challenges, go with the flow, and move forward with God's plan to touch and reach people with his word.  It can be sad to leave behind tradition and old ways that are familiar and a comfort to us. Even though music, hymnals, fashion, groups, activities, and decor continually change; I am assured that the foundation of the church will not change, the inerrant Word of God.

For You, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O Lord, from my youth.  Psalm 71:5

    SUNDAY BIBLE STUDY – 9:45 AM

    STUDY OF THE BOOK OF Revelation

    The author of Revelation mentioned his name, John, four times throughout the book (Revelation 1:1, 4, 9; 22:8). Christians throughout history have given almost unanimous affirmation to the identity of the book’s author as John the apostle, who had been exiled to the island of Patmos by the authorities for preaching the gospel in Asia. Usually, when people mention the book of Revelation, they immediately think about judgment. And without a doubt, much judgment occurs in the book. However, Revelation does not end with judgment. Instead, it provides a striking bookend for the entire Bible, which begins in Paradise and ends in Paradise. More than judgment on the evildoers, Revelation is a book about hope for the faithful in Christ.

     

    WEDNESDAY BIBLE STUDY – 4:00 PM

    STUDY OF THE BOOK OF 1 & 2 Kings

    The books of First and Second Kings are the story of Israel’s decline. Whereas 1st & 2nd Samuel document Israel’s shift from corrupt judges to the righteous leadership of David, Kings shows how Israel divides and falls into the hands of her enemies. These books of history pick up where 2nd Samuel left off: Israel is united under the godly King David, who appoints his son Solomon to rule after him. Solomon is blessed with wisdom and charged with building a majestic temple to the Lord in Jerusalem. God tells Solomon to remember Him and follow his father David’s example. Unfortunately, Solomon is unfaithful to God in his later years, and God divides the kingdom after his death. The northern ten tribes follow Solomon’s former warrior and taskmaster Jeroboam, and the tribes of Judah and Benjamin remain loyal to the throne of David.

     

    THURSDAY ONLINE BIBLE STUDY

    STUDY OF THE BOOK OF Esther

    The story of Queen Esther is one of the Bible’s most dramatic – a new young queen, an evil adviser to the king, a king prone to fits of rage, and a big dilemma for Esther! The basic plot summary is this: King Artaxerxes gets very angry as his queen, Vashti, and banishes her. Esther is book number 17 in the Old Testament of the Bible. It contains 10 chapters. The author of the Book of Esther is unknown.  Esther was the queen of Ahasuerus (Xerxes) and the daughter of Abihail, a Benjamite. Esther appears in the Bible as a  “Queen of Persia” and "woman of deep piety, faith, courage, patriotism, and caution.
