Holy Cross Lutheran Church is excited to announce Pastor Daniel Hauser has accepted the position as new Lead Pastor.
Founded in 1989, Holy Cross Lutheran Church is a member congregation of The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, and serves northeastern Indianapolis and southeastern Hamilton County, Indiana, including the communities of Fishers, Geist, Lawrence, Fortville, McCordsville and Oaklandon. The church has a long-standing relationship with The Sharing Place in Lawrence and has hosted a number of community events, including a FamJam Parenting Workshop, The Awestruck Music Festival and annual neighborhood garage sale. Holy Cross Lutheran School is a ministry of Holy Cross Lutheran Church and has over 425 students from age 2 preschool through 8th grade.
Holy Cross Lutheran Church has been patiently awaiting a new pastor since their longtime pastor of 27 years, John Sattler, retired a year ago. The church is excited to have Pastor Hauser lead the congregation and Christian school, and help grow their mission to connect with Christ and one another, nurture Christian faith and serve our community in love.
Pastor Hauser currently serves as Lead Pastor at Christ Little Rock in Arkansas, where he lives with his wife, Andrea, and their five children. He is known for being a relational leader who has a passion for community involvement and helping move people to love Jesus and one another.
In Pastor Hauser’s acceptance letter, he wrote, “One of my favorite verses in the Bible is I Thessalonians 2:8; We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us. This is my prayer and my goal. I pray that God will allow us to share life and ministry together as we grow in faith, and as we use our lives and the ministry of Holy Cross to reach those who do not know Jesus.”
Pastor Hauser will deliver his first message at Holy Cross on Sunday, November 8. And his Installation Services will be held the following Sunday, November 15.
Please join the Holy Cross congregation in praising God for this great news and praying for the Hauser Family’s transition to Indianapolis and their church in Little Rock as they seek their new church leader.
