Pastor Lara Forbes began her ministry at Saint Andrew’s on February 18, 2020.
Personal Ministry Statement: As a Christian I am called to love God and my neighbor. As I live this out as a pastor, I have come to understand that no congregation exists solely for itself. Rather, it’s an integral part of its surrounding community and the relationship between church and community is living, breathing, and dynamic.
Before coming to Saint Andrew’s, Pastor Lara served at Faith Lutheran Church in Phoenix, Arizona for ten years. She is originally from Washington State.

I also provide coaching and leadership training for business professionals and organizations. (more…)

Dr. Will Simpson has served as our Director of Music Ministries since 2012.
I moved here from Louisville, Kentucky in 2012. I have found Saint Andrew’s Lutheran to be one of the warmest and most caring congregations I have attended. This church is a great place to do music ministry!
Doug Johnson joined Saint Andrew’s as our Director of Youth and Family Ministries on August 1, 2020.

Kurt Lutterman has served as our Facilities Manager since 2003.
I am one of the non-“genetic Lutherans” on the church staff. When my family was looking for a new church in Bellevue with an embracing congregation and a palpable sense of the Holy Spirit at work, we found Saint Andrew’s in 1999. This church has been a fantastic home for my faith journey.

Susan Hegedus has served as our Communications Specialist since 2008.
I believe that God guides us (more often than we realize) to places we never thought we would be, but exactly where we should be. After I graduated from college, I thought I would settle into a career with Boeing Computer Services. Eight years later, I left to become a stay-at-home mom, a “career” path I didn’t think I would ever take.
