Pr. Mark Metze

Pr. Emeritus


​Pastor Metze began his ordained ministry with Annapolis Evangelical Lutheran upon completing a year of internship with Annapolis Lutheran. Pastor Metze studied history at the University of South Carolina before graduating from Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, PA with a Masters of Divinity. Before beginning seminary, Mark worked as a youth minister and camp counselor at a Christian summer camp known as Lutheridge. During seminary, Mark was trained in chaplain ministry by completing a unit of Clinical Pastoral Education. In his spare time, Mark likes to play guitar, read theology/ history, and ride his bike. He and his wife Rebecca have enjoyed the time they have spent in Annapolis and are thrilled to experience more of what the historic city has to offer.
