I am originally from Lake City, Minnesota, which is a small river valley town right on the Mississippi River. Most of my family still lives in the Lake City area. I have three sisters, four brothers, and fourteen nieces and nephews. There are a lot of us, but that is exactly what I love about my family!
I graduated from Martin Luther College in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education with an emphasis in history. I have a passion for teaching, and I am so blessed to be doing what I love each and every day!
Saginaw, Michigan is where I spent most of my life because my father was a pastor at St.Paul’s for 24 years. He recently accepted a call to serve as the pastor at Zion Lutheran church in East Farmington, Wisconsin. I graduated from Martin Luther College this past May with a double major in Elementary Education and Secondary Physical Education. At MLC, I was blessed to compete for four years in basketball and in track & field. I coached track & field at New Ulm Public high school for 2 years.
I am married to Brittany Brassow (Wendt) from Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Brittany will be finishing up school at Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall, Minnesota this fall. Brittany and I love any outdoor activity that involves movement. I have passion and enthusiasm for the teaching ministry which come from some amazing role models in my life who have lived the blessings of being called workers. Brittany and I look forward to building relationships and serving the Lord with such a wonderful congregation!
