Around 1835 several families in and around what later became known as Cappeln, MO, secured the services of the Femme Osage pastor, Herman Garlichs to come to this neighborhood as a "circuit" pastor and occasionally hold church services. Pastor Caspar Bode served the area from 1845-57. The church became officially "St. Joahnnes Deutsch-evangelische Kirche" (St. John's Evangelical Church) and called it's first pastor, Rev. S. Seybold in 1857. Below is a list of all the pastors, if available photos can be seen.
