Meet Our Team

Learn more about our pastor and the team that supports our ministry.


Hello! My name is Stephen Apt, and I have the privilege of being the pastor at Peace Lutheran Church. There is nothing I love more than telling people how much Jesus loves them.

I was born and raised up north in Crete, Illinois. After completing my high school education there, I graduated from Martin Luther College (2011)  and received my Bachelor in Liberal Arts. I continued my pastoral training at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary and earned my Master of Divinity in 2015. At that time, I readily accepted the assignment to start a church in Liberty Hill, TX.

My wife, Anne, and I are very excited to be living in Texas! We love outdoor activities such as fishing and hiking, as well as going on walks, trying new foods, and exploring. We are honored and excited to be serving the community of Liberty Hill and we can’t wait to meet you!
