Our Pastor

For a full list of Pastors who have served Emmanuel, click here.

The Reverend William Dwight Jones has been Pastor of Emmanuel Lutheran Church since 1990. Due to Health issues Pastor Jones has retired from preaching and other pastoral duties.

He is a graduate of King's College, Wilkes Barre, PA with an undergraduate degree in Theology and holds the earned professional degree of Master of Divinity from the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Gettysburg,

He also was received into a private audience with Pope John II in 1992 as part of a team of Lutheran Pastors debating 25 years of Lutheran and Roman Catholic dialog.


He served as Dean of the Middlecreek Conference, and is the Chairperson for the Bishop's Task Force for weekly eucharist. 


It is interesting to note that Pastor Jones was our longest serving Pastor in the history of our Church.

So as of 2020 Emmanuel has been without a Pastor. We due however have supply Pastors or lay ministers presiding over our services each Sunday. We are in the call process to find another Pastor, but this could take a while, we would like to encourage everyone to still come to church.

We wish Pastor Jones the best.
