Hi, I am Pastor Jon.

Pastor Jon

I am husband and father of three children. We are busy at home. I grew up in Wisconsin and consider myself a cheesehead. I am a Packer Fan through and through…with or without Brett Favre.

My first call after graduating from Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, IA, was in Fordville, North Dakota. There I learned the importance of visiting the parishoners in their homes or on their farms, and being active in the community. I recall doing ministry in combines, fishing boats, on the basketball floor and golf course, on the ice (ice fishing that is), and of course in the church building.

I enjoy playing golf, racquetball, basketball, and biking, and fishing.

I have been at Gloria Dei since January of 2007. Come and join us for worship and fellowship. You will experience worship with depth and ritual and always hear of God’s love for you.

God Bless,
Pastor Jon
