Pastor Jeff Carlson

It is an exciting time to be doing God’s work in His Creation!   

My wife Dawn and I were both born and raised in Wisconsin. In total, we have six children; Sixteen year old twins, Nick and Casey who live with us; four who are grown and on their own. We also have four grandchildren.

I am a second career clergy with a background in music and health care administration. In late 2001, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and by 2003 I was using a wheelchair and could no longer work. In 2007 I was placed on a ventilator and given a twenty-four months life expectancy. In 2008 I became completely blind. Then, in His mercy, God blessed us with a miracle; my health was restored. I could once again walk; breathe on my own; and see once again.                   

The following spring I began undergrad studies in Theology/Lay Ministry through Concordia University – Mequon, Wisconsin.

Prior to leaving for Seminary, I had the opportunity to do a six-month internship at a large congregation in Weston, Wisconsin. There I taught, assisted with worship and did hospital and shut-in calls. Likewise, the Resident Field Education congregation I served while at seminary, Peace Lutheran in St. Louis, served as more of a vicarage opportunity than most seminarians are afforded. I was involved in assisting with worship, serving communion, preaching and teaching Adult Bible class.

I am looking forward to serving you, building a relationship of Christian Brotherhood and partnering in the work of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Fighting His Good Fight until the day we see His Glorious Face,

Pastor Jeff Carlson
