Rev. Dr. John B. Warther

Associate Pastor


Pastor John serves as Associate Pastor at St. Paul's.  After receiving his undergraduate degree in business, he worked six years in Washington, D.C. as an accountant and Systems Administrator for a local company.  While serving in various church offices and Pilgrim Lutheran Church, he felt that God was calling him to become a Pastor.

After four years of seminary study at Concordia Seminary, Pastor John was ordained as pastor within the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, and his first call was to St. Luke's Lutheran Church of Elizabeth, NJ, where he served for ten years.  During this time, he received a Doctor of Ministry degree at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey and served in several New Jersey District positins for the church-at-large.

When St. Paul's called Pastor John as Associate Pastor in the spring of 1998, he accepted the call and moved with his family ready to take on new challenges and build up God's people at Glen Burnie and the surrounding communities.

Pastor John and his wife of almost 25 years, Edie, have two children, Tim and Bayley.
