I have been serving as an ordained pastor in the ELCA for 18 years. I am happily married to my spouse Kathryn Lohre, and we are blessed with 4 beautiful children – John (10), Ben (5), Hannah (5), and James (2). It is a blessing to be serving Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. We are a welcoming and warm place for worship, fellowship, mission, and education.
I focus on scripture primarily in my preaching and my teaching. I focus on demonstrating to people how scripture relates to us today. I am proud to be Lutheran and I enthusiastically present scripture and preach the Gospel through the Theology of Grace. Grace is God’s unconditional Love that is ours through what Jesus has done for us.
