Ministry News


Hello Prince of Peace,


I have exciting news I would like to share with the congregation. I have been called to serve St. Matthew Lutheran church in Hawthorn Woods Illinois as the associate Pastor. Before I can begin my work as a pastor I have to be ordained and installed into the congregation. For those of you not familiar with ordination let me explain. What happens is the ordination service is a special service where local pastors and pastors from all over the LCMS will gather to ordain me into the office of pastor. It is a special service that does not happen often and so I would like to invite you members of Prince of Peace, my home congregation who have supported me  to watch the service  through the livestream. The service will take place on July 1st at 2pm my time and that would be 12pm California time. The service is special and will contain several special musical pieces that they have been preparing for the service. Dr. Dale Meyer former Lutheran Hour speaker and former president of Concordia St. Louis Seminary will be the guest preacher. I grew up listening to him on the Lutheran Hour as a kid and then he was president of the seminary during my first two years there and having him as a professor for my classes. He was my first choice to preach at my ordination because he is an awesome preacher.

            There is extra excitement for this event because the pastor I will be serving along side with Pastor Ed Blonski did some research and came across the fact that this will be the first time in the history of St. Matthew that a man being ordained here will also be installed here as a pastor. St. Matthew is over 150 years old and in that time every man that has been ordained at St. Matthew has gone and been installed into another congregation where they are called to serve. This is not the case with me I will be the first to be ordained and installed at St. Matthew in the history of the congregation. With this being the first time there is a lot of excitement and joy for the congregation. I would like to invite  you to join in the celebration and watch as I am ordained and installed into the office of Pastor on July 1st at 2pm and that would be 12pm California time. The link can  be found here and if you have any questions, please let me know.

Live stream available at  and click on livestream at the time of the service.
