Senior Pastor Ron Feltman
Pastor Ron Feltman became senior pastor of Epiphany Lutheran Church in August 2012 after having served as part-time associate pastor since 2006.
Pastor Feltman was born in Jacksonville, Florida, and grew up in Columbia, South Carolina. He is an avid Gamecock, having graduated from the University of South Carolina. He received a Master of Divinity degree from Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in Columbia and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia.
Between 1986 and 2003, Pastor Feltman served congregations in Elloree, Columbia, West Columbia, and Irmo, all in South Carolina. In 2003, after 17 years of parish ministry in South Carolina, Pastor Feltman answered the call to the full time ministry of stewardship by becoming a financial associate for Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. He also worked as a recruiter, trainer, and compliance officer for Thrivent Financial. He was pleased to go back to his first vocational love—parish ministry—full time in 2012.
His particular passion in ministry is leading worship, preaching, and teaching. He also loves helping others become more generous disciples and discovering the ways in which faith can be a part of their everyday life. What he loves most about Epiphany is that it is a congregation with a big mission but the heart and personality of a small church.
His greatest joys in life are his wife, Heather, and his son and daughter-in-law Seth and Anna Lancaster. Heather is an ELCA diaconal minister who serves as the Director of Church Operations at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in St. Charles, IL. Seth is a securities analyst for Performance Trust, and Anna is a Registered Nurse.
In his free time, Pastor Feltman enjoys photography, playing golf, and playing the guitar and ukulele.
Pastor for Faith Formation Jennifer Moser
Pastor Jennifer Moser came to Epiphany in September 2015.
A native of Southeastern Pennsylvania, Pastor Moser is a graduate of The Pennsylvania State University, and still bleeds blue and white.
She has lived in the Chicago area for over 20 years, and spent 15 years in the financial industry, completing her first career as a vice president in the Global Securities and Control Division of Northern Trust.
In 2010, Pastor Moser graduated with a master of divinity degree from The Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago. Prior to joining Epiphany, she served as an associate pastor at Living Lord Lutheran Church in Bartlett, and as pastor of Ascension Lutheran Church in Riverside, both in Illinois.
She is passionate about worship and teaching. To her, the Bible is a living word with real-life application, and she takes joy in helping people see and understand where God’s stories intersect with their own.
Pastor Moser was married to Pastor Greg Moser, an ELCA Pastor and National Guard Chaplain who died from cancer. She has four children (three step-children and one of her own) who range in age from 24 to 4. She also has two spastic rescue dogs named Baylee and Scout. Her home has lots of noise, dog hair, and chaos, and she really wouldn’t have it any other way.
