Meet our new Atlantic Mission Region Dean!


The Rev. W. Stevens Shipman was elected to his first three-year term as the Dean of the Atlantic Mission Region on Friday, October 22, 2021 at the AMR Convocation held at Holy Cross Evangelical Lutheran Church, Nazareth, PA.


Pastor Shipman and his wife Linda live in Dillsburg, PA (Western Mission District).  Steve is also currently serving as interim at Bethany LC (Montoursville, PA).


Please keep Steve and Linda in your prayers as he takes up the leadership of our Region.


Many thanks go to out-going AMR Dean David McGettigan (and his wife Kathy) as he retires to the golf course after 6 years of serving as Regional dean.
