Meet Our Pastor

Pastor Josh Toufar

Pastor Josh joined the LCGS team in August of 2017. He had previously served at New Hope Lutheran Church – Sand Creek and Pine Creek. Prior to attending and graduating from Luther Seminary, he did his undergraduate work at Luther College before graduating from UW-Eau Claire.

Pastor Josh and his wife, Kayla, married in 2011 and they have three children, Olivia (2014), Jackson (2016), and Owen (2019). They are excited to be raising their family in Eau Claire. They enjoy spending time together as a family and rarely is there a dull moment.

Pastor Toufar’s greatest passion for ministry is discovering what all of God’s children bring to the table. His faith was nurtured by a congregation that loved and cared for him. It is his personal mission that any child that comes into our church will know that while they are here they are loved, and they matter.
