Our Pastor

 My name is Walt Bedford, C.R.E and Pastor here at Strasburg Presbyterian Church. I was born and raised along the shores of Lake Huron in the State of Michigan. I come from a musical family.

After serving as a medic in the U.S.A.F. from 1970-1974, I came to the Aurora/Denver area and for over 40 years, worked for lumber company’s selling building materials.

My home church is the 1st Presbyterian Church of Aurora, where I have been a member since 1985. There I served as Deacon, Elder and many other areas of ministry. I led worship there for over 25 years.

I married my wife Kristin in 1993. Although disabled she continues to love and support the ministry we have entered into. 

In 2011, I entered the Commissioned Ruling Elder program, completing a course of study from Dubuque Seminary, finishing in 2014 with an internship at United Church of Montbello. 

In February of 2015 I was called and accepted the position here at Strasburg Presbyterian Church. I enjoy preaching and Pastoral Care. I have been told that people will remember what you do, long after they forget what you said in a sermon.

God has made it clear that ministering to people’s heart is the cutting edge of what we do here at SPC. The Prayer chain, Deacons Parish ministry, communion and monthly pot lucks are all important pieces of the caring ministry where Christ’s Love is demonstrated. I am Blessed to be part of what God is doing here at Strasburg Presbyterian Church.
