Dr. Ben Moravitz accepts call as pastor of Lutheran Church of the Incarnation

The Rev. Dr. Ben Moravitz accepted a call to serve as pastor of Lutheran Church of the Incarnation in September 8, 2013. A 1984 graduate of Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary, Columbia, SC, he was pastor of St. Timothy Lutheran Church in Goose Creek, SC for 11 years. Pastor Moravitz received clinical training in Charleston, SC and Decatur, GA before completing a Doctor of Theology in pastoral counseling at Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, GA. In 2002, he became a Georgia Licensed Professional Counselor. That year, he founded Marietta Pastoral Counseling Center, Marietta, GA, a non-profit organization, where he continues to serve as executive director providing counseling for individuals, couples, and families and supervision for counselors in training. He has taught marriage and family therapy at Argosy University, Atlanta and is frequently invited to offer presentations and workshops on pastoral counseling, pastoral care-giving, and congregational leadership at national, regional, and local gatherings for counselors, pastors, and congregation members.

Pastor Moravitz and his family have lived in East Cobb and been a part of the community here since 1996. His wife, Mary, works for the U.S. Department of Justice as a paralegal specialist. The Moravitz' have two adult children, a married daughter who teaches kindergarten in Kennesaw and a son who is preparing for graduate studies in mathematics. A musical family, the Moravitz' enjoy musical theater and choral music. Daughter, Bess, and son, Joe, were involved in the choral and band programs at Lassiter High School. Bess and her husband, Jeff, sang with the renowned Concordia Choir of Concordia College, Moorhead, MN. Pastor Moravitz plays guitar and noodles around with the hammered dulcimer. In his spare time, he enjoys home improvement and golf.

Pastor Moravitz brings to Incarnation years of experience helping congregations to focus on their mission and to organize themselves for ministry. Working as a counselor, Dr. Moravitz spends most of his time listening. Serving as a pastor, writing and preaching sermons and teaching, is a welcome opportunity for him to be expressive and creative in communicating the Gospel.
