Associate Pastor

I was born in Saint Paul but spent my childhood living in many different places. My dad was an engineer and his work took us to Illinois, Alabama, and eventually Mesa, Arizona where my parents still live today. Katie is from Cedarburg, Wisconsin, a charming little town north of Milwaukee. She has an older and a younger sister.

The two of us met while in college at Concordia University Wisconsin and were married shortly after graduation. Moving down to Saint Louis, we began our lives together and I began seminary, eventually graduating in 2012. Our vicarage was in Elberta, AL, a very small town filled with amazing people about a half hour from the Gulf Coast.

After graduating seminary, I was ordained and installed at Saint Luke Lutheran Church in Cabot, PA as the associate pastor. During my time at Saint Luke, I oversaw, amongst many other things, our confirmation program as well as care for our shut ins and hospitalized members. Katie began a mom’s ministry, taught a class for two-year olds and their parents called “Time for Two”, and taught junior high Sunday school.

During our time in Cabot, God blessed us with two children: Benjamin who will be five in March and Anna who is two. When Benjamin is not in preschool, he is with his sister at home with Mom.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with the family and going to community gatherings like street fairs and festivals. Katie is always dreaming up fun and interesting activities for the kids to do at home, that is when she is not working on projects for mom’s ministry or Sunday School.
