Rev. Beth Wartick

Pastor Beth has served Resurrection Lutheran since February 2021. As pastor, she appreciates the strong community and sense of humor found at RLC. Pastor Beth enjoys so much about being at RLC, from nurturing youth growing in faith to talking with adults continuing to wrestle with what following Jesus really means. It's a great joy for her to be preaching and leading worship each week. Pastor Beth believes that church should be a place where all God's children are welcomed, fed, forgiven, and sent out to live as God calls them. If you want to get to know her more, Pastor Beth will be happy to meet you for a cup of coffee and conversation.

Pastor Beth lives in Ankeny with her husband, J.W., and their two kids. In her free time, she enjoys baking, hiking, and playing nerdy board games.
