          Pastor Joe Varsanyi began his ministry with St. Peter's Lutheran Church in the fall of 2013. Pastor Joe has served a number of urban and suburban ministries in the Philadelphia region since his ordination in 1980.  Fluent in American Sign Language and Board Certified by the Association of Professional Chaplains, Pastor Joe brings a wide range of interests and skills to our Hilltown community.

        Pastor Joe graduated with a Master of Divinity from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, MO in 1980. He served St. Philip's Lutheran Church of the Deaf, which served the Deaf Community in the Delaware Valley and Southern New Jersey and has served in many multi-cultural and chaplaincy positions throughout his 35 years of ministry. Pastor Joe has a passion for youth to connect to God and a desire for the elderly, marginalized and hurting, to reconcile with God's Love.

            "I enjoy people," Pastor Joe shares, "people of faith and people who struggle to have faith." Formerly trained as a Mission Developer with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, he is supportive of the ministry and outreach of St. Peter's Lutheran Church.


             "We are called to do God's work.  It is always God's Work," he reminds us, "but our hands are needed to do the work. God is doing amazing things in our world, reconciling the whole world to God's self, in Christ Jesus. We are called to do this very ministry, by God's grace alone."
