Lutheran Charities

Welcome to Lutheran Charities of Western New York!


From Thomas Madden, the New Executive Director


It’s an honor to be called as the next leader of Lutheran Charities and build on its tremendous thirty-plus years of ministry in Western New York. Working with the Board of Directors, I look forward to what lies ahead as we address needs in today’s community as a called people of God. 

I’ve been active in the church throughout my entire life, serving currently as vice-president of the Upstate New York Synod of the ELCA and as president of The Lutheran Church of the Incarnate Word in Rochester. As a graduate of Valparaiso University I served recently as president of their Alumni Association, a member of the University Board of Directors, and currently as a member the University’s Strategic Planning Committee. 

I had a long career as a Senior Scientist at Eastman Kodak specializing in digital imaging. Throughout my career, I always was drawn to engage in the ministry of the church in one way or another, and the opportunity to lead Lutheran Charities came as an answer to my prayers. I hope that my experience, depth of commitment, curious vision, and desire to engage congregations, agencies, and individuals will help further the ongoing mission of Lutheran Charities. 

Lutheran Charities has a bright future! I look forward to working with you as we expand the Kingdom of God in Western New York in the days ahead.
