Rev. Stephen Keiser
- Philadelphia, PA
Pastor, Christ Lutheran Church, Upper Darby, PA
I grew up in Levittown, PA. Graduated from Wheaton College with a bachelors in philosophy. After fifteen years working in community banking, I enrolled at the Lutheran Seminary in Philadelphia from which I graduated in 1999. I began pastoral ministry as an unordained pastoral associate in 2000, serving the Lutheran Church of the Holy Communion in downtown Philadelphia. In January of 2009, I was ordained extraordinarily onto the ELM roster. I was received onto the ELCA roster a year later. In October of 2014, I began work at Christ Lutheran Church in Upper Darby, PA, one of the most diverse congregations in the ELCA. My spouse, Dennis, and I have been together for 20 years.
