Pastor JT Burk has been with Prince of Peace since March 2023. He grew up on a farm in Northwest Kansas, and attended Bethany College in Lindsborg, KS, where he received a B.A. degree in Biology. After College, he worked in construction and as a delivery driver for a plant and tree nursery, until being offered a position as a Youth and Family Minister at Trinity Lutheran Church in Loveland, CO. This led him to attend the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago, IL, where he graduated in 2010.

Pastor Burk first served a 3-point parish in Western North Dakota. For four years he was the Pastor of First Lutheran in Beach, ND, Trinity Lutheran, in Sentinel Butte, ND, and Trinity Lutheran in Wibaux, MT. He then moved to Washington State, becoming the pastor of Mount Cross Evangelical Lutheran Church in University Place.

Previously at Prince of Peace, Pastor Chienyu Jade Yi served as our interim pastor from December 2021 to March 2023, and Pastor Pam Russell served as our pastor for twenty years, retiring in August 2021.

Londa Jacques is our office manager and a longtime member of Prince of Peace.

A number of contributors lead us in our music. Cheryl Stitt is our worship pianist. Shawn Erickson is our occasional organist. Barbara Scheel provides direction for our Choir.
