Leadership

Tucker O'Leary
Senior Pastor

Pastor Tucker was born in 1993 in Minnesota and found his love for the church at a young age. He graduated from highschool in Massachusetts and attended Lenoir-Rhybe University where he received a BA in religious studies focusing on youth and family ministries. He then went directly to Trinity Lutheran Seminary at Capital University in Columbus Ohio. He spent two years in Columbus working on his Masters of Divinity and finished in Iowa while serving a congregation in 2020. He was called and ordained to serve as pastor here at Grace in September of 2020. If you don’t see pastor at work you can either find him walking around town with his dog Moneypenny or working as the local Axe Master at Beavers Teeth teaching people to throw axes.
