Greetings in the name of Christ our Lord!
My name is Pastor Larry R. Yaw. I have been serving at St. John Lutheran Church since January 2012. Before serving at St. John, I served as pastor of youth and family ministry in Rockford, IL.
I was born and raised in small town Napoleon, Ohio. It is there where I would meet my wife, Heidi. Following high school, I attended and graduated from Concordia University in River Forest, IL. Following graduation, I attended Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, IN, graduating 2007.
I was ordained into the Holy Ministry on June 17th, 2007, serving St. Paul Lutheran Church in Rockford, IL before accepting the call to serve as pastor of St. John.
My wife and I were married in 2004 and have a lovely family. In 2005, we were blessed with a little boy, Noah, who died shortly after birth. In 2006, we were blessed yet again with our second son, Peyton. And in 2009 we added to our family a pretty little girl, Lorelei. In addition to our children, we have a dog named Bella.
We are a family that enjoys the outdoors, sports, reading, movies, and music. I am an avid sports fan, and my wife enjoys baking. We truly feel blessed to be a part of the Pulaski Community and thank the Lord for the chance to worship and serve along side the members of St. John and the surrounding community.
