Ministry Leaders

Joe Nollet

Senior Pastor

Pastors are called to churches to care for God’s Word and Sacrament.  I am blessed to be able to do that here at Our Savior Lutheran Church together with a flock of wonderful disciples of Jesus. 
I grew up on the North Shore (Lynn) and I think our church home here in Topsfield has a special place as an evangelical church here on the North Shore. 
 After St. Mary’s High in Lynn, I got my undergrad at Salem State, and then a Master’s at TCNJ in NJ. I worked as an Athletic Trainer in Sports medicine before attending seminary at Concordia Theological Seminary FW.  I previously served churches on the UConn campus in Storrs CT, and Scituate MA.  I have a love of New England, of many sports, and I’m joyfully married to Ann and we have 4 grown sons.
