Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in West Salem, Wisconsin

When did you know you would become a Pastor?

PastorIt happened over a period of time. Mid 2nd year in college to mid 3rd year. I went to college with the idea of going into medicine, but even though I had the ability I didn’t have the desire. I just didn’t want to study biology for hours. I realized I did like spending hours reading about history/poli sci. I switched to economics and I did ok, I got As and Bs but there was always a feeling that I would flunk out in the next exam. Every class was a struggle. Then I visited a seminary and I thought ‘this is easy.’ I remember saying to myself ‘I can do this.’ It just felt right. I thought I finally figured out what God was doing. My way wasn’t working, I had to let go of my way.
