Hello, Liberty Church!
My name is Pastor Kemper Huber, and I have accepted the call to serve Liberty as your Transitional (interim) Minister. My wife, Janet, and I are excited to come and be a part of your church family. We look forward to getting to know you in the coming months (it may be a little more difficult with everyone wearing masks) and worshiping and serving with you side-by-side.
I was asked to share with you a little about myself and my background. I spent most of my life in a small town in Wyoming. I have an agricultural background. My family (5 boys and 1 girl) had a farm, ranch, and a feedlot. I spent my youth, and most of my adult life, tending sheep! Yes, I am a Shepherd who became a Shepherd.
I met Janet in this small town (she moved there to work for a couple of years and I never let her leave), and we raised our two sons there. When the younger graduated high school, he left for college and I left for seminary. I attended seminary (Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary) with the belief that God was calling me into Transitional Interim Ministry. After graduation, Janet and I have traveled to and served at seven churches in this capacity.
Janet and I enjoy the outdoors, and traveling to places we have not seen before. We both play golf—badly, but we enjoy it. I am an avid reader. Also, we love spending time with family, especially our three precious grandchildren. Our younger son just got engaged (much to his mother’s delight) and we are looking forward to a wedding celebration.
I know that this COVID pandemic has changed a lot of things in our lives, including how we “church.” We are finding new ways to stay connected and united as a body of believers. I am confident that no matter what the world throws at us, we are not facing it alone. We stand together united in the knowledge that God is with us and that no matter what tomorrow holds, we know WHO holds tomorrow.
In Christ’s Service,
