Vicar Joe is from northern Wisconsin.  Bring raised in the Lutheran Church by a family that is heavily involved in ministry (Dad a school administrator and Mom a teacher) he has always known that He would serve God by serving in the church.  By way of Concordia University in Chicago and Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Vicar Joe is happy to spend his vicarage year in S. Florida where he will love to teach and preach the love of Jesus and also play a little disc golf!  Emily, Joe’s wife is an educator and will be working at St. Paul Lutheran School as the Reading Specialist.  Besides the love of being outdoors, Emily and Joe love to be in the community.
