Thomas E. Block & Staff/Officers

Pastor was born in Chicago, Illinois on June 16, 1951.  Upon completion of his studies for the holy ministry at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, MO, in 1977 he was ordained in his home congregation of St. James Lutheran Church in Montague, MI. 

In August of 1977 he was installed as pastor of Redeemer Lutheran Church in Newark, NJ. - an inner-city congregation. 

In 1980, Pastor Block received and accepted a call to be the shepherd of St. Paul Lutheran Church, in Cortland, NY. He served at St. Paul from 1980 to 2001.

He then received a call to serve Christ Lutheran Church, Lakeland. He accepted the call and was installed as the pastor of Christ Lutheran in July 2001.

Pastor Block is married to Madeline, whom he met in his first congregation. Madeline is a retired language interpreter for the deaf who worked for Polk County Schools. Pastor and Madeline have two adult children, Christian and Emma.  Christian has a degree in Sociology from USF and Emma has a degree in business administration from USF as well.

Pastor Block is an avid sports fan.
