Meet The Pastor

Louis Synnestvedt


Born in Abington, Pennsylvania, Lou moved with his family to Pompano Beach at the age of 13. He attended Nova High School in Davie, Florida. After a few years enjoying the sunshine, he completed his High School in Bryn Athyn, PA and continued on to attend the Academy of the New Church College and Theological School.

In Bryn Athyn he married the lovely Aileen King, and together had 10 children. His ministry has taken him to Georgia, Pennsylvania, California, Canada, the UK, and Kenya. What he loves about the New Church is the idea that the Lord has made His Second Coming which is not a coming again in the flesh, but in the Spirit, that is in His own Word. This means that the New Church is about a transformation within the minds and hearts of people resulting in a Christianity made new. “Behold I am making all things new!” Jesus said, as recorded in the Book of Revelation, 21:5.

Lou and Aileen are happy for this return to Florida and look forward to meeting you all soon!
