Rev. Fred and Gloria Strickert

Fred serves as pastor of the English-speaking congregation at the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Jerusalem. He also serves as special assistant to the Bishop of the ELCJHL.

The English-speaking Congregation of the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer is a ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and a vital part of the work of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land (ELCJHL). We are a diverse congregation with a variety of expressions of the Christian faith: groups, nationalities, and backgrounds, leading and participating in our gathered community.

In this land twenty centuries ago, the Church was born. God filled the newborn Church with Godís Spirit and with an abundance of gifts to carry out its mission to proclaim the Kingdom of God to all the world. That mission continues at the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer. Like the early apostles, we witness to Godís presence, grace, and love for all people in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ. Our worship together recreates the life of Jesus and the vitality of his community. We follow the rhythm of the church year, commencing with Advent in December, which leads into the sharing of Christmas in the land of our Lordís birth. The long period of preparation for Easter culminates in remembrance of Jesusí death and then a joyous celebration of Easter only meters from where his Resurrection took place.

The Lutheran Church of the Redeemer is located in the Old City of Jerusalem, in the Christian Quarter, about 50 meters from the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The white stone tower of Redeemer, which may help to orient you, is one of Jerusalemís tallest landmarks. The English-speaking Congregation meets in St. Johnís Chapel, part of the Redeemer Church complex.
