Rev. Asher O'Callaghan

Pastor of Highlands Lutheran Church

 Pastor Asher considers himself lucky to call the front range of Colorado his home. He loves the active outdoor culture and revels in all the opportunities for hiking, biking, running, and camping. In his spare time he serves as housekeeper for his cat Jack and enjoys time with his parents, brother, sister-in-law, and adorable nieces and nephew who all live in the metro area.

Before becoming a Lutheran pastor, Asher fancied himself spiritual but not religious. He thought he was done with organized religion after growing up transgender and bisexual in a fundamentalist church. But then he stumbled into a church called House For All Sinners and Saints in Denver, Colorado where God messed up all his plans. There he heard an invitation he couldn’t help but go share. From Christ’s open table he heard: “Behold who you are. Become what you receive.”

Becoming what he’s received has led him to earn a Master of Divinity from Luther Seminary, to pastor a small mountain congregation called Zion Lutheran Church, to serve as Program Director for Extraordinary Lutheran Ministries, and now to serve as pastor of Highlands Lutheran Church.
