Our Leadership & Missions

Rev. Kirk Griffin


Pastor Kirk realized early on that he was called by God to the ministry. After serving God in other churches, in 2008 Pastor Griffin began his ministry here among the people of St. Mark Evangelical Lutheran Church in Hanover. People that know Pastor Griffin, appreciate his humor, friendliness and very conversational style of preaching. He is available to speak to you anytime, just send an email or call.

From Vacation Bible School to adult Bible Study to Sunday School, Christian Education strives to meet the learning needs of Lutherans and those who want to learn more about our Savior.


Through our Worship & Music, we use song and music with our weekly services to explain God's promises to us through His Son and through our efforts. 

Stewards of Blessings Ministry
