Our Pastor

On July 8, 2018, Transfiguration Lutheran Church welcomed Reverend Aaron Dickerson as the official pastor of TLC.  Rev. Dickerson has served as an educator and administrator in Lutheran schools for over 35 years.  He is currently the Principal of Unity Lutheran Christian Elementary School in East St. Louis.  He is a graduate of Concordia University-Nebraska and Concordia Seminary-Missouri.

 “I am married to Charlene Dickerson and we have two daughters, Aramie and Keyera.  I enjoy serving the Lord and working families in the urban area.  It is a great mission field to fulfill the Great Commission.”


His goal for 2019 is “Moving Forward, and Not Looking Back”.  He draws his inspiration from the verse:

“Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
Phillipians 3:13-14
