Chris served our congregation as Director of Youth and Education from 2011-2013. He writes "East Union was a great place to be prior to seminary… I loved it. I found it to be a very formative time in my journey to becoming a pastor."
Chris and his wife Luci were ordained into the Ministry of Word and Sacrament of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) in June following their graduation from Luther Seminary, St. Paul. He has been called to serve as pastor of Partners in Faith Lutheran Parish, where he will serve as pastor of three small congregations who have united for mission and ministry.
