Rev. Ronald L. Young
I see St. Paul as a place for people to grow in a relationship with Jesus Christ while enjoying life-long friendships with other Christians. Come and see… My Bible verse is 1 Corinthians 15:58 – “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” I am married to Jeri Moldenhauer and we have three adult children, Brent (Meghan), Chad (Heike) and daughter, Jamie. I love my family!

Rev. Jeffery M. Smith
Pastor Jeff Smith was called to be associate pastor of St. Paul in the summer of 2015. He and his wonderful wife, Melissa, met in college and were married in 2011. Although Pastor Smith is originally from Illinois, and Melissa is from Arkansas, they feel very happy and blessed now to call Cleveland their home, and they love their St. Paul family. Pastor Smith is “living the dream” he’s had since he was 8 years old—getting to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with people every day as a pastor. When he’s not “pastoring”, you can find him being an obsessed sports fan and fantasy football nerd, reading fantasy/science fiction books, playing board games, or eating pizza.

The role of an Administrative Assistant at St. Paul Lutheran Church is to meet the administrative and organizational needs and demands of the pastoral and ministry staff. I provide the support to the various positions in order to better serve our congregation. Through out the day, I find myself switching hats several times a day – and no two days are alike. It’s a fascinating yet crazy way to be a servant to others and a gratifying way to serve Our Lord.
