What have you been up to since graduating from Denver Lutheran in 1987?
I graduated from Concordia Irvine, worked as a Manager for the Mustard Seed Christian Bookstores, was a Field Representative for Diamente Music in the Christian Music Industry, and went into full-time ministry as Contemporary Worship Leader at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Orange, CA. Then, I became a pastor and served there for 18 years. I then took a call to be senior pastor at Trinity Klein Lutheran Church in Spring, Texas where I am now.

Earlier this summer, a group of 10 students, 4 parents and staff spent a week in El Nino, MX - about 15 miles east of Tijuana - serving the Comunidad Cristiano El Nino (CCEN) church. This is LuHi’s third year partnering with Christ for the City mission organization to serve the community. CCEN, led by Pastor Daniel Nunez, works with a ministry called Kingdom Builders which is part of a larger ministry, Ministerios Transformacion (TM).
Teachers spend their summers laying on their couches playing Fortnite, right? Not quite. After spending about 275 days with you, their wonderful students, they need to make up for lost time! Many teachers travel, but summer is also a time to catch up on work and further their teaching skills.
