Pastor - Rev. Mark A Kliewer
After Graduation from Concordia Theological Seminary in May of 1987, I accepted the call to serve Zion Lutheran Church of Winnemucca, along with Christ's Mission of Battle Mountain and Immanuel Lutheran Church of Ely, Nevada. I currently serve Zion Lutheran Church of Winnemucca and Christ Lutheran Church of Battle Mountain, Nevada. Both congregations have strong Preschool programs. I conduct Chapel each week at each location.
A lifelong Lutheran, my childhood was spent in NW Oklahoma on a small farm. I was baptized at St. John's Lutheran Church, Lipscomb, Texas. I confirmed my Christian faith at Christ Lutheran Church, Shattuck, Oklahoma in 1967 where my family also has long history. I moved to Derby, Kansas and attended Faith Lutheran Church in Derby following the death of my parents. Following graduation from Derby Senior High School in Derby, Kansas I enrolled at St. John's College, Winfield, Kansas. I continued my education at the University of Idaho, earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Wildlife Fisheries Resources. After a few years of work in the Wildlife field and then logging I enrolled at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Indiana, eventually earning a Master of Divinity in 1987.
