Visiting Pastor

Carl Noble

Pastor Carl Noble was raised in Detroit, Michigan, by his loving Grandparents. Pastor Noble was a member of Mt. Calvary Ev. Lutheran Church, Detroit, and was fortunate to attend Mt. Calvary’s elementary school. After graduating from eighth grade, Carl went to Lutheran High School East, Detroit. Pastor Noble began his college years at Concordia Junior College, Ann Arbor,
Michigan, in 1965 and finally graduated from Concordia Teachers College, Seward, Nebraska. He graduated in 1970.

Pastor Noble was a Lutheran elementary teacher for 6 years and a Director of Christian Education for 2 years. Pastor also spent some time working at I.B.M. Elzbieta F. Stanek and Carl L. Noble were married on February 10, 1979. Two
short months later they were packing to move to St. Louis, MO, to attend Concordia Theological Seminary. Pastor Noble graduated from the seminary in May 1983.

Pastor Noble served his first parish Trinity Lutheran Church in Deer Creek, MN. He also served as the vacancy pastor for St. John’s, Ottertail, and Trinity, New York Mills.

Pastor Noble was called to active duty in 1986 and served in the U.S. Army for 4 years. Pastor Noble served a total of 15 years in the National Guard. He spent tours in Fort Monmouth, NJ, Fort Sam Houston, TZ, Fort Huachuca, AZ and in Heidelberg, West Germany. He served also during the first Gulf War. Following his active duty service Pastor Noble served as a Missionary at Large in
Mesa, AZ, beginning a new mission congregation – Hosanna Lutheran Church.  He served at Hosanna for 7 years and received a call to St. John’s Lutheran Church and School in Lansing, IL. Three years later he received a call to Zion Lutheran in Arcadia,
Iowa, spending 7 years in this wonderful small rural town. Pastor and Betsy’s last church before retiring was St. Paul’s Lutheran in Perham, MN.

Carl and Elzbieta have 5 children and 10 grandchildren. Their children live in different parts of the United States – from the Pacific Coast to the Atlantic Coast! They wish we could spend more time with them – but are learning how to use modern
technology to talk over the internet!

They moved to Gulfport, MS in July of 2017. They love their retirement home and spend time enjoying life together. Pastor Noble has been the vacancy pastor at Redeemer Lutheran in Mandeville, LA and presently serves Lamb of God Lutheran Church in Slidell, LA.

May God receive the glory!
