We are so grateful to have such a talented team to make every worship experience extraordinary.
Pastor Molly Kuekes
I was called to serve A Mighty Fortress in 2018. I love the community here and have enjoyed partnering in God's mission with this congregation. I feel most called to walking and being with people who are hurting, aching, and grieving. I feel most connected with God when I am sitting with people, hearing their stories, and bearing witness to their voices. My pastoral theology is founded in the idea that God is with us, always.
In my spare time, I can be found exploring the Charlotte area with my family. I have a little one, Wade, who loves to ride in the stroller while out and about. Observing and taking in all the sights of this big world is one of his favorite things to do. My husband and I enjoy taking Wade on hikes, to different parks, and hanging out at breweries - bonus points if they're dog-friendly and we can bring our two Golden Retrievers, Eden and Bowser, too! You'll also often see Eden around the church bringing smiles to everyone who comes in the doors.
I'm excited to see where God leads the people of A Mighty Fortress in the future!

Liturgical worship speaks to my soul and is a joy in my life. I am grateful to AMF for the journey that I am privileged to share with each of you . I am grateful for Pastor Molly’s direct and eloquent manner of her sermon messages and her openness for avenues in worship to share the Gospel!
May we continue our journey to increase our knowledge and bring the message of the Gospel to the world. Thank you for allowing me to grow in faith and “spread my musical wings."

I have been serving as the Administrative Assistant for A Mighty Fortress Lutheran since September 2019. It has been a joy to use my gifts and talents to serve the congregation. A Mighty Fortress has such a warm and welcoming congregation who have made me feel at home.
