Winding road brings minister to Mount Cross

Glenn, Joyce Zimbelman join Lutheran Church in the Rim Country

Payson has only two roads into town, but the routes its residents have taken to get here are as varied as each individual — regardless of how long the Rim Country has been their home. The path that brought the Rev. Glenn Zimbelman and his wife, Janice, to Mount Cross Lutheran Church started in the Milwaukee area 27 years ago and most recently passed through Ohio, west of Cleveland. The Zimbelmans were called to Ohio to “plant a church” — start a church from scratch. The services were held in a warehouse, informal and media driven.
