Responding to a life-long call to ministry, Pastor Patti Axel graduated from the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in Mary of 2008 and was Ordained and Called to be Pastor Developer on July 6th of that year.  Pastor Patti feels the deep call of the church to be focusing outside the walls of our buildings and actively engaged in the community. Although she started out as a Mission Developer, she feels strongly in the priesthood of all believers and that each and every one of us is called to actively seek involvement in our communities doing God’s work with our hands. She looks forward to many years serving God’s people as a Pastor.  As well as being active in the Lutheran Church she was a Pediatric Nurse for 26 years and retired from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.  She believes her ministry in healthcare is now continuing as she serves the church; it defines who she is as a person and as a Pastor.  She and her husband Jeff live in the Decatur area and have two adult children.
