Webber, David Jay

The Rev. David Jay Webber received a Bachelor of Arts degree in history in 1984 from The King’s College in Briarcliff Manor, New York; a Master of Divinity degree in 1988 from Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana; and a Master of Sacred Theology degree in 2015 from the Institute of Lutheran Theology in Brookings, South Dakota. In 1988 he was ordained as a Pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Synod, of which he has been a member ever since. He serves on the ELS Doctrine Committee, and is the Visitor for the ELS Arizona-California Circuit. He served as Pastor of Scriptural Evangelical Lutheran Church in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, from 1988 to 1990; as Pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church in Brewster, Massachusetts, from 1990 to 1997; and as Rector and Professor of Theology at Saint Sophia Ukrainian Lutheran Theological Seminary in Ternopil’, Ukraine, from 1997 to 2005 (under the auspices of the Thoughts of Faith mission society). He has been the Pastor of Redeemer Lutheran Church in Scottsdale, Arizona, since 2005. 
Pastor Webber has been a frequent speaker or essayist at various theological, genealogical, and historical conferences over the years, both in Europe and in North America. These have included the Confessional Christian Worldview Seminar in Trego, Wisconsin (on three occasions); the Bethany Reformation Lectures in Mankato, Minnesota (on two occasions); the New England Regional Genealogical Conference (on two occasions); the Palatines to America National Conference (on two occasions); the Biblical Worldview Conference in San Antonio, Texas (on two occasions); the WELS National Conference on Worship, Music, and the Arts; the Emmaus Conference in Tacoma, Washington; the Conference on Christianity and Culture in Escondido, California; and the Luther Forum in Brewster, Massachusetts. He has also taught in the seminary program of the Lutheran Mission of Salvation in India. 
Papers or articles written by him in the areas of theology, liturgics, church history, and genealogy have appeared in several publications, including The Bride of Christ, Concordia Historical Institute Quarterly, Logia: A Journal of Lutheran Theology (of which he is a contributing editor), Lutheran Quarterly, Lutheran Sentinel, Lutheran Synod Quarterly, The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Slovo (a bilingual Slovak-English publication), and Styah (a Ukrainian publication). He authored three chapters in the book Here We Stand: A Confessional Christian Study of Worldviews, issued in 2010 by Northwestern Publishing House. And his full-length book, Spiritual Fathers: A Treatise on the Lutheran Doctrine of the Ministry, with Special Reference to Luther’s Large Catechism, was published in 2013. One of Pastor Webber’s presentations, “Spiritual Fathers,” will be based on this last book. 
He has been married for 31 years to the former Carol Wimble. They have three grown children: Paul (also a Lutheran pastor; married to Marta; father of grandson John and granddaughter Helen), Sarah (married to Matthias), and Catharine.

Natalie Pratt has tried to erase the porn and porn addiction sites - too late.
My ELS/WELS expert collected a bunch of them,
and I have that list.



Information from Natalie Pratt is 100% suspect, but this photo and the one above were on her Facebook page - before she erased them.
She erased Twitter accounts she is following, perhaps all the porn addiction treatment sites (if they are that) But - 
How about the address that starts cew....? The first photo is x-rated, "wedding photos gone too far?"
The Old WELS Tricks  - Deflect and Erase
Dishonesty in WELS is betrayed by a number of old tricks.

  1. Deflection is useful. Don't address the issue of a fraudulent conference led by a woman with no qualifications. "You used private information!" Here is a little English lesson. When something is published - especially on the Internet - it is not private but public. Material posted on Facebook or government websites is not private or no one could see it. Pretending otherwise is deflection.
  2. Deflection is also handy for claiming victimhood and hurt feelings, two worn weapons of the Left. "You made me feel bad" is not only a criminal indictment, but a 100% conviction as well. Perhaps someone completely unqualified should not be even near a Lutheran conference, let alone managing it with a high school girl.
  3. Deflection is also practiced by running around gathering allies to pounce on the person who tells the truth in public, using his own name.
  4. Erasing is clever but always a day late. When I find someone published on the Net, I copy the URL and the material. WELS typically erases the evidence, claiming innocence, victimhood, and hurt feels. A good old round of name-calling is handy and comes natural to WELS. But erasing the evidence does not change the fact of the sin: it only proves the individual was guilty in the first place.
  5. Erasing does not solve any problems, since the evil intentions are the same. When I began publishing all the Church and Change conferences and their list-serve conversations, they were filled with wrath that their "secret" list-serve revealed the main characters and their devious behavior. Church and Change officially disappeared and had their "last conference" with DP-in-Waiting Don Patterson attending. But their cancerous organization simply grew in numbers and programs, with Mark Jeske and Mark Schroeder laughing at the hicks who believed C and C was gone.
