Morgan began his ministry with us on March 16th, 2015.

Morgan was born in Hickory, NC and was raised right here in Catawba County. He graduated from Newton-Conover High School and attended Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, NC where he earned a degree in Sacred Music with a concentration in Organ. Some of his teachers include Florence Jowers, Robert Smith, and Frances Whitener.

Morgan began the Specific Ministry Pastor program through Concordia Seminary, St. Louis in the Fall of 2018, He now serves Bethel as their Vicar (pastor-in-training) for 2 years before being certified and ordained.

Morgan met his wife Sara Scronce at a fundraiser event for the Green Room Community Theatre in 2011 and they were married at St. Paul Lutheran Church in December 2012. Together they have a daughter, Norrie, who was born on July 17, 2016.

Morgan previously served Bethlehem Lutheran Church ELCA in Hickory, NC, and St. James Lutheran Church in Newton, NC.

"St. Augustine once wrote, 'When we sing, we pray twice!' and St. Paul tells us to "pray without ceasing". What better way to unite our hearts in prayer than to sing to the One True God!" says Morgan. "The Divine Liturgy is filled with music. The tradition of music is what I feel makes us distinctly Lutheran."

Some of Morgan's hobbies include reading, computer tinkering, and graphic design.
