I am the pastor of Los Altos Lutheran Church where I have served since 2012. I grew up in Palo Alto, California, attended college and seminary in Minnesota and previously served congregations in Westland, Michigan; Detroit, Michigan; Toledo, Ohio; and Grosse Pointe Michigan. It’s a very diverse and fascinating collection of parishes.
