who is Pastor Jerald P. Dulas?
Pastor Jerald P. Dulas and was installed as pastor of Saints Peter and Paul Ev. Lutheran Church, UAC, Simpsonville, SC, January 15, 2017, by the Rt. Rev. James D. Heiser, the bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Diocese of North America (ELDoNA), an independent Lutheran parish affiliated with the ELDoNA. He has since formed ELDoNA mission congregations in Augusta, GA (St. Michael and All Angels Ev. Lutheran Mission), Myrtle Beach, SC (All Saints Ev. Lutheran Mission), and oversees the work of Sts. Peter and Paul’s deacon, Rev. Dcn. Floyd P. Smithey, Jr., in the formation of a mission in Knoxville, TN (St. James the Elder Ev. Lutheran Mission). He is currently in the process of forming a new ELDoNA mission parish in the Fort Myers, FL area.
On July 6, 2002 he was united in holy matrimony to Tanya Dulas née Palm of Blue Earth, MN, who was born September 30, 1969 in Springfield, MN and baptized at Zion Lutheran Church in Springfield, MN on October 12, 1969. She was confirmed at St. Paul Lutheran Church, in Blue Earth, MN on March 31, 1985. They have not been blessed with any children. Pastor was born on September 21, 1970 in Wells, MN and baptized on October 4, 1970, at Mt. Carmel Catholic Church, Wells, MN. He was confirmed in the Evangelical Lutheran faith on May 26, 1985, at St. John Lutheran Church in Winsted, MN. He graduated from the Lutheran High School in Mayer, MN on June 5, 1989. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology with a Minor in Business Management in August of 1994 from Concordia University, River Forest, IL. He earned his Master of Divinity at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, IN with a specializations in Pastoral Administration (with an emphasis on the study of the Liturgy) and New Testament Exegesis in May of 1998. During his time at the seminary, he did a summer internship at St. Thomas Lutheran Church, Baltimore, MD in the inner city and did his vicarage at Trinity Lutheran and Cross of Christ Lutheran Churches in Memphis, TN, both of which were in the inner city. He was ordained onto the LCMS clergy roster on June 21, 1998 at Zion Lutheran Church, Mayer, MN.
In the LCMS, Pastor served parishes in Louisiana and Minnesota from July 1998 until September 2004. He colloquized into the ELDoNA in June of 2009 at their annual synod and colloquium. He was called shortly after to serve as Deacon (the term our diocese uses in place of Associate/Assistant Pastor) of Good Shepherd Ev. Lutheran Church, Tony, WI. After accepting the call to serve as Good Shepherd’s deacon with the specific assigned task of being missionary-at-large to MN and WI, he was installed in September of 2009. After he and his wife settled in Mayer, MN, a mission parish was established at that location (St. Matthew Ev. Lutheran Mission). They later moved to Hutchinson, MN and relocated the Mayer mission. A mission in Mankato, MN (St. Matthew Ev. Lutheran Mission) was also established in September 2012, the membership of which was made up of mostly college students and recent graduates.
Pastor’s name appears on the publication of two works: First, The One True God, The Two Kingdoms, and the Three Estates written by Bishop James D. Heiser, to which he contributed the prayers in the back of the book. Second, The Psalter and Canticles of the New King James Version, of which Pastor set the entire psalter and the New and Old Testament canticles to the historic Gregorian Psalm tones. The work also supplies the daily offices of Matins and Vespers with Invitatories, Antiphons, Versicles and Responsories for different times and seasons within the Church Year, all of which are set to modern music.
Since the bishop, pastors and deacons of ELDoNA are for the most part bi-vocational Pastor, and his wife Tanya, were farmers before moving to Greenville, SC from MN, raising hogs, turkeys, and chickens (both for meat and eggs). He is currently managing rental property. In addition to making homebrew and wine, Pastor also keeps bees, and does gardening. He enjoys watching hockey, baseball and football. Tanya worked for McDonald’s Corporation for 23 years under both franchisees and corporate owned stores. For the last several years she has been working for 3M. She started in Hutchinson, MN and currently works in the Greenville, SC plant as a Slitter Operator, back up Team Lead, and back up Supervisor. In addition to sharing many of Pastor’s hobbies, she also enjoys spending time at the beach.
