Driven for a Reason

image36

Having served 25 years in Lutheran Schools, Dr. Libka still offers services to Lutheran congregations in all the service areas that follow and others desired. Recognizing his ability and experiences are a blessing from God, and that the Holy Spirit fuels his faith in his Savior; he is driven to ensure operational integrity, high ethical standards, and a focus on meaningful outcomes.


Born into the faith through baptismal waters in 1951, Dr. Libka was later confirmed in the faith in 1964, and called to service in the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod in 1975. Whether serving as a called church worker or involved in other endeavors, he considers his work ministry, both response to his rescue in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and witness through words and actions of a loving Savior.


He attributes whatever "success" he has enjoyed to the many special people who have surrounded him throughout his early years and adulthood. Most of all he is grateful for parents who loved him, introduced him to the church, had high expectations, and supported the pursuit of his dreams.

Home: Pigeon, Michigan

World class musicians, leaders in education, medicine, military, and government, successful businessmen and women, preachers, and university presidents, were born here and will never forget their hometown.
