A second career Pastor, I was honored to serve our nation as a United States Marine for 27 years, including 3 tours in Iraq, attaining the rank of Sergeant Major. Going to college at night, I earned my undergraduate degree while in the Marines. I graduated from Luther Seminary and was ordained in 2017, my first call was serving 2 small congregations in rural Gage County for 4 years, and I am concluding the past 6 months as Transitional Associate at First Lutheran Church in Lincoln. I am also in the process of becoming a Spiritual Director and will be certified in June of 2023. In the coming weeks I look forward to talking with many of you, including the children and youth.
Kellie has been with ALC for 2 years. She moved to Ashland with her husband Joseph from Arizona 4 years ago. They have 4 children Michael, Melody, Harmony and Kellen. Her hobbies include cooking and anything to do with music. Kellie finds peace in providing service to ALC since it allows her to provide service to the community as well. She is excited to help grow ALC’s congregation in the Ashland community.
