Hello, my name is Pastor Zach Labagh. It is my privilege and honor to serve as Lead Pastor at Allegheny Evangelical Lutheran Church. I was born and raised in Bradford County PA, and after college attended seminary at Gettysburg Lutheran Theological Seminary in Gettysburg, PA. I was ordained in 2007, and have served in Montgomery, PA (St. John “Brick”) and at St. John’s and St. Mark’s, Canajoharie, NY and Trinity in Stone Arabia, NY. My passion for ministry is finding ways to connect with and serve the community around the church. I enjoy working with local organizations to aid in the development and support of families. Sharing the grace of God by doing, has become my slogan. At AELC you will experience an inviting, caring, and open group of people who are excited for the future vision here in this place. I look forward to welcoming you and working with you.
