Robert James Kurtz

Our beloved senior pastor is the Reverend Bob Kurtz who walked away from a six-figure income and his prestige as a top TV golf commentator and uncanny football forecaster for CNN to be in a very different field - a Pastor preaching the gospel instead of reporting nightly scores.
Pastor Bob, formerly a sportscaster for CNN and CBS, is senior minister of our church. He came to St. John's from Nashville, Tennessee where he served for six years as Pastor of the First United Church, an historic congregation of Swiss Reformed roots. Both the Cullman and Nashville churches share an early tradition of German-speaking worship services. Pastor Bob has continued that tradition by preaching partly in German when visitors from our sister city of Frankweiler, Germany come to our community.
Kurtz has brought to us an enthusiastic commitment to a strong ministry to old and young and a strong desire to grow in faith and share the gospel. He is a graduate of Yankton College in South Dakota and received his B.D. and Master of Divinity degrees from Drake University. He also studied radio, television and film in the Graduate School of Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois. He is a Norfolk, Virginia native and was ordained in l968 years in his father's church in West Point, Nebraska.
After serving churches part time as a student he entered a twenty year broadcasting career that won him industry praise for his strong presentations,insightful commentary and consistently high quality performance. He was nominated for both an Emmy and a cable ACE award as a broadcaster. But the desire to be a minister grew stronger and stronger, and Kurtz ended up keeping faith with his family tradition. Both his late father and his brother became ministers in their 40's. His older brother, the Reverend Charles Kurtz, was an active pastor in one of our most historic German Evangelical churches-- Femme-Osage, Missouri.
Pastor Bob has served as chairperson of the Southeast Conference Evangelism Committee. He has also acted as the chairperson of the Alabama-Tennessee Association's Stewardship and OCWM committee and was on the Southeast Conference Board of Directors. He also organized the Evangelism Institutes in Atlanta. Pastor Kurtz is currently the President of the Evangelical Association, a national organization of locally autonomous churches with similar beliefs and also, in many instances, a common heritage.
Pastor Bob is also deeply involved in the community activities in Cullman. He believes that because St. John's is the original church founded by the first families to immigrate and settle at the present site in north Alabama, the church and church leadership have a responsibility to be active. He served as President of the Ministerial Association for five years and is the Chairperson of the annual community Oktoberfest and the President of Cullman Oktoberfest, the non-profit body that oversees all Oktoberfest-related activities. In addition, he served on the Board of Trustees of the CRMC Hospital Foundation and was the District Director of the Boy Scouts. He is a champion golfer and has competed on the Senior Tour. He and his wife Pat feel called of God to serve St. John's and the community of Cullman.
