Praying that the eleventh time would be a charm, the voters of St. John’s braved cold and ice to cast a unanimous ballot for Rev. Stephen Kruschel of Geneva, Nebraska to serve as associate pastor. Pastor Stephan and his wife Rebecca have been blessed with five children, ages 10,8,6,5 & 3. Pastor hails from Redwood Falls, MN and Rebecca from Iron Ridge, WI. The couple met while studying at Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. The Kruschels currently serve the dual congregations of Grace and Trinity Lutheran churches in Geneva and Grafton, NE, respectively. As we keep the Kruschels, their Nebraska church family and God’s work in our prayers – you can contact the church office for Pastor K’s contact information to speak or communicate with him personally about our needs and opportunities.
