Lead Pastor Layne Nelson

Greetings from East Side Lutheran Church. My name is Layne Nelson and I am honored to be called to serve as the Lead Pastor in this place.

In my time here, I have learned that this is a community with Jesus at it’s center, one that is deeply rooted in the city of Sioux Falls, and one that truly loves people. I pray that God would meet you where you are at in life today, and we would be honored to walk with you in Faith.
