Pastor Don Erickson
Hi there. I’m Pastor Don Erickson. I’ve served at Rock of Ages for 7 years. I have a background in both the business and faith worlds. After 23 years with Hallmark Cards I retired and went to seminary in Chicago and then served a congregation in suburban St. Louis for four years. Following that I served as President/CEO of Wycliffe Bible Translators Foundation and VP Marketing for Wycliffe Bible Translators in Orlando for a total of 8 years. After a brief second retirement I served as interim pastor at Rock of Ages. That led to a call to be the permanent pastor. Throughout my vocational life I have witnessed the transformational power of the Gospel in many different contexts. It is my privilege to serve at Rock of Ages. I look forward to serving you.
Lynne Shinn, Office Manager
Hi, I’m Lynne Shinn, office manager of Rock of Ages.I am originally from Chicago, moved to the Ft. Lauderdale area in 1974, then to Sumterville in 1991.
I came to Rock of Ages in 2009 and was warmly welcomed and knew that I wanted to become a part of this church. I have served on the church council and as secretary since 2012 and in 2014 I moved into the office manager position. I enjoy serving the people of this church in any way that I can.
Royce Ruther, Pianist & Choir Director
I have been a church musician since I was 12, playing piano and organ and directing choirs. I’ve served at Rock of Ages since 2011 and consider my musical leadership my primary form of worship.
I graduated from the Music Conservatory at Capital University and was married to a Lutheran pastor for over 48 years.
I love the Lutheran worship liturgy, and strive to connect the music to the Scripture readings each week.
