On Pentecost Sunday, May 20, Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church installed The Reverend Mark Reiff as Pastor. 

Pastor Reiff earned his Master of Divinity Degree from Northwestern Theological Seminary, St. Paul, MN.  He has also completed theological studies at St. George’s College, Jerusalem;  Chichester Theological College, Chichester, England; Oxford University, Magdalen College and Wycliff Hall; The Anglican College, Rome Italy; St Wigbert’s  Monastery, Werningsdorf, Thuringia, Germany; and the University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee.

Pastor Reiff said this, “I have been to the Holy Lands of Israel, Jordan and Egypt (the Sinai) six times since 1998.  Each of these pilgrimages, with the attendant

studies at St George’s College, have enriched my life, my faith, and my understanding of scripture in ways that have been profound and powerful.  It has deeply affected and impacted my preaching, teaching, and ministry.”

Pastor Reiff has previously served as Pastor of Lutheran Congregations in Minnesota, California, New York, Washington and Wisconsin.

The congregation of Shepherd of the Hills is excited to be starting a new chapter in our Christian life of worship, witness and service to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, with Pastor Reiff as our pastor and shepherd.  

Following the Installation Service, there was a reception in Bertschy Hall, next to the Church.  Shepherd of the Hills is located at 37015 Orange Valley Lane, Dade City (corner of Ft. King and Clinton).  Our Sunday Service is at 9:30 AM.  If you are looking for a church home, please join us.
