Our Pastor

Greetings in the name of Jesus!

I was born and raised in Burlington, WI. There I was adopted into God's family through Holy Baptism on May 8, 1977. Since then, God has led me on an adventure of faith as I listened to and studied the Bible at the feet of wonderful Christian parents, grandparents, pastors, teachers, and professors. That adventure led me through two years of engineering school, four years of study at Martin Luther College (New Ulm, MN), four years of study at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary (Mequon, WI), two years of ministry at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Port Orange, FL, and five years of ministry at Abiding Peace Lutheran Church in Elgin, IL.

I began my ministry here at Lamb of God in April 2012. It is an honor and a joy for me to partner with the members of Lamb of God and of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) as together we:

  • worship our Savior Jesus in all that we do,
  • grow in faith and godly living as we meditate on God's living Word, and
  • share the love of Jesus with others in central Ohio and around the world.

God has blessed me with a wonderful family whose love and support I could not do without in my ministry. Elisabeth (nee Potratz) and I met at Martin Luther College in 2001 and were married in 2004. We have five children: Micaiah (13), Sarah (11), Anna (9), Silas (4), and Lydia (2).

I thank you for visiting our website today, and I hope that we get the chance to meet. I would love to get to know you, to discover with you what God says about his plan for your life, and to share with you the greatest treasure in the world--the awesome life-saving love of our God and Savior!
