About Us


Redeemer began as a mission plant in 1974, holding its first service at Peace Lutheran Church in Elk Prairie, Missouri, and then meeting regularly at the Rolla Lion’s Den facility. In 1975, the church of 53 members chose the name of Redeemer and purchased the property on Hwy 72, where they stand today.

All through Redeemer’s rich history, our story continues to be rooted in God’s salvation story. Gathering as a family around God’s Word in worship and service, we strive to tell this biblical story because through it we see our part in God's bigger story. New pages are still being written; we’d love for you to be a part of God’s family at Redeemer.

A way to grow. An opportunity to make a difference. A place to call home.

Our Values


We gather as a Christ-centered community of faith around worship, discipleship, missions, and family (Acts 2:42-47).


We worship the Triune God alone and seek constantly to grow in our spiritual lives and service to others.


As followers of Jesus, we are on a mission to make disciples (Matthew 28:18-20) – to go, tell, and serve where God has placed us (Isaiah 6:8).


We are a church of many souls, yet one Body in Christ, working and worshiping together with one mind, heart, and mission of the Lord’s work (John 17:20-23).

Our Beliefs

Redeemer is affiliated with the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS). For more info on what we believe, visit LCMS.org, join an upcoming Next Steps class, or give us a call. We’d love the conversation!

Our Leadership


Rev. Dr. Nathan Kuhlman


Nathan was born and raised in Minnesota and when he talks you can still hear long “O’s” on a good day. He has two incredibly smart and good-looking kids (not that he’s partial) and two energetic Brittanys. If you were to find him on his day off, he’d be walking his dogs, working in the garden, or cooking up a new recipe. He also likes to play the piano and hit the gym (not at the same time). He is a proud Vikings fan who still holds out hope that one day they’ll actually win the Super bowl! One can dream, right?
