|Pastor Brian Adams
I grew up in Brown Deer, Wisconsin. After graduating from Wisconsin Lutheran High School in 1980, I continued to study for the ministry at Northwestern College in Watertown. After graduating from Northwestern College in 1984, I continued to study for the ministry at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary.
As part of the Seminary training, I served a "vicar" year at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church in Oconomowoc. Also as part of my Seminary training, I studied the original languages of the Bible, Bible history, doctrines of the Bible, sermon preparation and counseling. In 1988, I graduated with a Master of Divinity degree.
After graduation in 1988, I was assigned to serve a mission congregation in Keystone Heights, Florida. After serving there for almost 6 1/2 years, I accepted the Divine Call to serve as associate pastor at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Franklin in November of 1994. For 25 years, I have served here at St. Paul's.
In 1986 I married my wife, Nancy. The Lord has blessed our marriage with 3 children: Rachel, Joshua and Katie. Rachel is married to Caleb Manske. They have a three children, whose names are Lily, Noah and Ella. (My wife and I enjoy being grandparents.) Katie is married to Caleb Nitz. They have one child. Josh is married married to Leah Schlecht.
I enjoy working outdoors and traveling. I am excited about the many new opportunities that the Lord has been giving St. Paul's in the area of Franklin.
