About the Pastor

Pastor Noah

Pastor Noah was called to serve at Atonement late in 2014 and officially began in January of 2015. He walks with the congregation in the process of renewal for ministry in the ever-changing context of the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia.

A North Carolinian, Noah moved to Philadelphia in early 2009, when he began an advanced degree program at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (now United Lutheran Seminary). Pastor Noah completed his first program in Historical Theology in 2011 and immediately began work on a PhD. He is currently still writing his dissertation.

For fun, Pastor Noah enjoys table top and video games - as well as enjoying the various events and opportunities the city has to offer.

The has also recently started a Pub Theology pod cast with Pastor Shawn Hyska. A link to the first podcast can be found here - Pub Theology: Fishtown
