Herb serves on the Transition Team as Director for our Faith Development ministry for 6th – 8th grades as well as the Director for Pastoral Care. He is responsible for the instruction of students as they prepare to affirm the promises made at their baptism. He also provides care during those times when our members are faced with sickness, hospitalization, or have a need for guidance as they experience significant changes or challenges in life. Herb also helps couples prepare for marriage as well as works with families as they deal with the death of a loved one.
Herb comes to us as a retired pastor, having served for 15 years at Hope Lutheran Church in Hubbard Lake, Michigan and Zion Lutheran in St. Ignace, Michigan. Prior to being ordained, Herb was a forester/firefighter for the State of Wisconsin. Herb has extensive theological knowledge and has been a valuable resource for our congregation.
