I am glad you came to my site. I am an emeritus Lutheran pastor, which simply means that I am retired from active pastoral ministry in a congregation. However, I work full time for The Institute of Lutheran Theology (www.ilt.org), an independent Lutheran Seminary in Brookings, South Dakata. The school has both Graduate Programs and Certificate Programs. I am the Director of the Certificate Programs. I am also the Director of Communications for the school. In addition, I teach both Church History and Biblical Theology classes. I am an author and an avid reader of theology books.
