Lord of Life History


YES! Lord of Life is the church that Westboro Baptist Church picketed in 1998!

A Discipline Hearing Committee of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) ruled Feb. 3, 1998 to remove the Rev. Steven P. Sabin, Ames, Iowa, from the church’s clergy roster, effective April 15, 1998. Sabin, pastor of Lord of Life Lutheran Church in Ames, is gay and lives with a partner.
