We are… • sons and daughters of a gracious and loving Father. • people who are imperfect, yet are forgiven because the Father sent His Son, Jesus, to rescue us. • men, women, boys and girls who live our lives following the leading of Christ, our King. • learning to release God’s riches by loving Him, loving those connected to Him, and loving those who are in need of a relationship with Christ.
• a congregation who lives under the authority of God’s Word, the Bible, and interpret His Word from a Lutheran perspective–


Pastor Al Doering

The Senior Pastor provides leadership and vision for the ministry of Christ the King Lutheran church. Pastor Al, a Galveston native, was raised in a family with a long heritage of serving God through the ministries of the Lutheran church. Of the six Doering children, Al and one brother followed in the tradition of their grandfather by becoming pastors. Others in the family, including Al’s wife Mary, have been involved in the teaching ministry. Al attended Concordia Lutheran College in Austin and Concordia College in Seward, Nebraska. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Arts, he served as assistant director of a Lutheran camp in Minnesota for one year. Al received a Master of Divinity degree from Concordia Seminary,St. Louis and was ordained in July 1983. He accepted his first call as pastor to Faith Lutheran in Craig, Colorado, where he served seven years. He was called to become Christ the King’s first resident pastor in August, 1990.

Mary, Pastor’s wife, is a Minnesota native and Concordia graduate, who served with Al on the camp staff in Minnesota. She has been a teacher in Lutheran schools and is now coordinator of Women’s Ministry at Christ the King. The Doerings were married in 1980. They have three children: Anna, Ted, and Matthew. Al relaxes by spending time with his children, taking morning jogs with his wife, and running in a few long-distance races each year.
