Our Staff

Pastor Lindsay Mack, Pastor (she/her)

Pastor Lindsay Mack came to LMC in the Fall of 2017. Pastor Lindsay has a passion for deepening the spiritual lives and commitments of people. She loves provocative questions about faith, meaningful worship and leaning into our call to serve people on the margins of society.  She believes we are all spiritual beings trying to figure out what it is that gives our lives meaning and purpose.

Before coming to LMC, Pastor Lindsay served as the coordinating pastor of the ELCA Young Adults in Global Mission Program in Mexico City. Previously, she has served with ELCA global mission with the Christian Lutheran Church in Tegucigalpa, Honduras and at a domestic violence agency in the western suburbs of Chicago.  Lindsay has a Master in Divinity from Union Theological Seminary. She lives in Chicago with her husband, Omar, their twins, and their Rottweiler, Clio.

Deaconess Claire Schoepp, Director of Child and Family Ministries (she/her)

Deaconess Claire began serving at LMC in the Fall of 2012. She has a deep commitment to play, wonder, and looking for God in unexpected places – especially those places that make us uncomfortable because of our own preconceived notions or prejudices. Her belief in making the world a better place is rooted in the power of healthy vulnerability and courage to risk coupled with a good story. More than a lot of things, honoring the spirituality of children and youth is important to Deaconess Claire.

Like many in ministry these days, Deaconess Claire is bi-vocational. When not at LMC, she serves at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church of Logan Square as Director Administration and Communications. She is an avid fan of fair trade coffee, progressive bluegrass, and children’s books. Deaconess Claire is a consecrated deaconess in the Lutheran Deaconess Conference, a community of the Lutheran Diaconal Association. DeaconessClaire has a Master of Theology from Loyola University Chicago. She lives in Chicago with her spouse, Isaac, and their child.

Liza Micelli, Contemporary Worship Director (she/her)

Liza directs LMC's Praise Band that provides music at our 11:00 a.m. contemporary service. She has always found it rewarding to share her musical gifts with others, and is grateful to be a source of inspiration and support to those in and outside of the LMC family. When not directing praise band, you can find Liza playing in various groups around town and teaching private and group piano lessons. Fun fact! There’s TWO OF HER!

Christopher Drummond, Organist (he/him)

Christopher Drummond serves as LMC's organist. You may know him (or his feet!) as the organist accompanying the congregation virtually since the Fall of 2020. Christopher brings a long history serving churches and a university as an organist and director of music. In addition to his ministry of music, Christopher recently completed a Masters degree in Divinity and is currently a candidate for ordained ministry in the ELCA.

Eron Dupree, Director of Music (he/him)

Eron directs LMC’s three choirs as well as regularly serving as cantor at the 9:00 service and jumping in wherever additional music is needed in events and worship.  Eron is a full-time music teacher with a plethora of musical theatre knowledge.  When he’s not singing and directing the choirs, Eron is playing volleyball and doing his best not to hit the ball out-of-bounds.
