Our Pastor

Reverend Richard Scott Lohmanimage(1)

Prior to being called to Advent Lutheran Church, Pastor Scott served at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Aurora, Illinois, where he was the Care and Outreach pastor. Before that, he was called to start a church in Minooka, Illinois, called Minooka CrossPoint, reaching people in the community in many creative ways.

Before being called into full-time ministry, Pastor worked as an insurance claims adjuster mainly in vehicle claims.

Pastor Scott and his wife, Gina, have served in multiple ways in the church and community and look forward to making a difference in North Carolina as well. Pastor and Gina have been married for 24 years. Gina is a teacher at Minooka Junior High School in Illinois, where she helps kids who have extra challenges in math and other areas. Pastor Scott and Gina enjoy life and laughs together, especially as they spend time with family. Gina’s family is in Warrenville, Illinois and the surrounding area, as well as in Tennessee and Ohio. Pastor Scott’s father, Rev. John Lohman, is retired in Iowa, and Pastor’s brother, David, is in Seattle.

The Lohmans have 4 children:

Courtney (Bradley) lives in the suburbs of Grand Rapids, Michigan, and is married to Paul Bradley who is a nurse. Courtney is a Biology Research Specialist at Calvin College.

Robert is the Lohman’s oldest son, and lives in Chicago. He has a long-time girlfriend, Lisette, who is studying education at DePaul University. Robert graduated from DePaul in the Summer and looks to expand his career in his chosen field of Business and Finance.

Jack is studying Computer Networking and related fields and is presently at Joliet Junior College. He plans to transfer to DePaul as well. Jack also works hard as an assistant chef.

Jonathan is finishing up this school year in Illinois and will come in to North Carolina as a Junior in High School. He is a good bandsman and enjoys many laughs with his friends.

Maddie is the Lohman’s fine coon hound and revels in naps dreaming of squirrels and bunnies.
