How has it changed over the years?
How does our church view leadership?
In 86 years, Our Redeemer has been served by only eight pastors, five for ten years or more, with Rev. Edmund Peters having served 30 years (1962-1992). Rev. Daniel Streufert served next, until retirement, and was followed by Rev. Steven Latzke, our current pastor, who has been here since 2004.
