Rev. John Kucharik served as Senior Pastor of St. Luke's from May, 1968 until 1982. During the era of his pastorate, a team ministry was formed to assist him in his work with the growing congregation and school. After completing his service to St. Luke's, Rev. Kucharik served as Visitation Pastor for Trinity Lutheran Church (downtown Orlando) for several years. Eventually he and his wife, Eleanor nee' Svehla, became residents of the Lutheran Haven, where they lived until Eleanor's passing in December, 2000 and Pastor John's less than a year later. The couple is buried in St. Luke's Cemetery in Slavia, FL.
