Our Pastor

Pastor Chris Wicher

We welcome our Vacancy Pastor Chris Wicher. The Reverend Doctor Chris Wicher is married to Beverly (Aul) for 45 years. They met while attending Concordia College in Bronxville, NY. They have been blessed with three sons, Timothy, Benjamin, and Gregory. Tim has two sons, Austyn and Gavyn. Greg is married to Becca.

For pastime Chris enjoys traveling, gardening, walking, reading and writing. The Wichers reside in Cheektowaga, New York. Chris pastored congregations in Goderich, Ontario, Newfane, New York, and Cheektowaga, New York before serving as President of the Eastern District, Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod from 2009 until his retirement in September 2022. Bev and Chris have lived in Missouri, Wisconsin, Ontario, and New York. They share a love for camping and have been to great places including Bar Harbor, ME; Glacier National Park; Yellowstone National Park; and the Grand Canyon.

Chris looks forward to his next chapter in life, serving as Vacancy Pastor of Pilgrim Lutheran Church. One of his favorite Bible passages speaking to the Pastoral Office comes from St. Paul's first letter to the Corinthians, "For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified."
