Good Shepherd is a warm, caring community of believers centered in Christ in Janesville, WI. We are members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) and are part of the South Central Synod of Wisconsin.
The congregation of Good Shepherd began its life as a subsidized "package mission" of the American Lutheran Church in 1970. In 1971, a mission developer named Reverend Charles Evavoid recruited members for the mission for 8 years. After Reverend Evavoid's 8 year tenure, Philip Borleske became the second pastor and served 6 years.
Rev. Janice Diefenthaler (pronounced Dee-fin-tay-lor) is very happy to begin as your new interim pastor on February 1, 2016. She is an ordained Presbyterian pastor and has been in the ministry since 1986. She and her husband, John, have 4 grown children and live between Evansville and Janesville.
Music Director Charlotte Hawley is responsible for all music of the church. She is the organist, directs the choir, performs and arranges special music for services, as well as helps with music for weddings and funerals. Charlotte is adept at almost any variety of music. Charlotte and her husband Tom live in the Janesville area.
