Rev. Matthew Lane or Pastor Lane as he is known to the congregation was ordained and installed at Peace Lutheran on July 7, 2013. Pastor Lane is married to his lovely wife JoAnna. The Lanes have two children. Pastor Lane had an interesting path into the ministry. Pastor Lane attempted to live out the dream of becoming a professional baseball player and played in college and three years of minor league baseball before pursuing the vocation of pastor. He would be the first one to tell you that he is very happy with where he is at as a pastor rather than a baseball player. He still loves the game of baseball along with other outdoor activities which include hunting, fishing, and camping.
