Pastor’s Blog

Dr. Spomer joins Ablaze Christian Academy and Ablaze Church with many years of experience.  He attended Concordia Senior College in Ft. Wayne, IN where he received his BA before going to University of Michigan for his Masters in Education and Concordia Seminary in St. Louis for his Master of Divinity and finally receiving his Doctor of Ministry at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA.  Dr. Spomer has served as pastor in new church plants as well as established churches. He has also been a part of founding preschools in Ann Arbor, MI as well as Broken Arrow, OK.  International short-term evangelistic mission work has also been a part of Pastor Spomer’s career, serving in Tanzania, China, Guatemala, and Grenada.  Dr. Spomer serves the Ablaze Community with his wife Connie.  They have 2 daughters and 4 grand children.

I look forward to serving the children and families within the Broken Arrow community as campus pastor at Ablaze Christian Academy.  We want the love of Jesus to permeate the atmosphere.  I will regularly and joyfully greet kids as they arrive at school. I am available to encourage and give spiritual counsel to all within our Ablaze Christian Academy and Ablaze Church community.  I will work closely and prayerfully with staff members to help them best exemplify and apply Christ’s character.
We work hard at Ablaze Church to be warmly welcoming and to provide a place of new beginnings in life’s journey.  We will be non-traditional in worship and programming, yet with the solid, historic teaching of the Christian faith.  Jesus Christ will always be the core, and the inspired Word of God of Scripture will always be our source.  We want the opportunity for all people, all ages, to become everything God has in mind for them in Christ Jesus.
Warmly,
Dr. Art Spomer

“Lighting the way” is an awesome responsibility for Kara, Dr. Spomer, and myself.

Shannon O’Brien

Director of Christian Education (DCE)

Shannon O’Brien will be serving at Ablaze as our Director of Christian Education Intern for a full year. After this she will officially graduate from Concordia University, Nebraska with a double major in Director of Christian Education and Theology. While Shannon is here she will work with all areas of ministry and especially growing the Children’s ministry.  It is important to us that each of these ages feel welcomed and that they belong at Ablaze where they can Love God, Love Other, Love Jesus and Tell Others!

“I could not have asked for a better congregation to be working with! God has blessed me immensely to be working with Pastor Dreier and Pastor Spomer. The love of Christ is so evident here I cannot wait to see what God has in store for us this next year! I am looking forward to be working with such an amazing team and learning from some of the best! Thank you for allowing me to go on this journey with you in learning to love Jesus more and more.” 
Joyfully,
Shannon O’Brien
