There has been a lot of nurturing going on throughout Richard Pagan’s life. As pastor of Aboite Lutheran Church, Pagan ministers to at least 300 adults every weekend. But, it was his family and children who inspired him during his journey to be the man he is today. “From my mother who was my first model of true spirituality, to my wife, Robyn, who has been my other half in creating, leading, feeling and putting life and laughter into everything I do. My daughter, Kristin, has also been amazing. Kristin has the ability to combine hard work and dedication with both a genuine enjoyment for what she is doing and a caring attitude for whomever she is with!” Precious moments Pastor Pagan recalls reverently are the birth and adoption of each of his children. “You never forget those moments the love you instantly feel and the realization that everything is changed from here on out!”
5 things on Pastor Richard’s summer bucket list:
- Time with my new grandchild, my first – Kim Thompson III.
- Helping my wife, Robyn, with her health.
- Time away with Robyn.
- Exploring some ways to help guide my church family in our quest
to be completely committed and fully developing followers of Jesus.
- A retreat to pray, read and write.
