Pastor Casey Lieneman started at The Church of The Covenant in 2017. He comes from the cornfields of Nebraska but loves the people and the West Virginia life. He was previously pastor at Christ Lutheran Church in Pierce, Nebraska for four years.
He enjoys Nebraska Cornhusker football, baseball, and spending time with his family. As a small child he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Having experienced God's love and the church's communal support he knew then that he wanted to dedicate his life to the faith and help others experience God's goodness. He believes life is meant to be enjoyed and strives to make every worship meaningful to our daily lives. He is proud to serve The Church of The Covenant and eager for what God has in store for the congregation.
Casey and his wife Corey have been married since 2007. Corey is pursuing her PhD in Child Clinical Psychology at WVU. They have two little boys (Chi & Benny) who love exploring the hills and creeks of West Virginia.
Pastor Casey left our church in the summer of 2020, due to his wife's educational program. He has returned home to Nebraska, where he serves the Redeemer Lutheran Church
