SENIOR PASTOR
REV. AL PIHRINGER
 
Family:
Trisha (Wife), Kyle (Son), Kenzie (Daughter)
 
Ministry Verse:
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15 ESV)
 
What I Like Best About Ministry:
Helping people to come to an understanding of their sinfulness, their need for Christ, how to come to know Christ, and then how to live out who they are in Christ. I also enjoy helping people to form a Christian worldview and teaching them how to defend the faith when confronted with contrary worldviews.
 
For Fun I Enjoy:
Spending time with my family and with my animals (cat Max and Misty, and dog Jane Eyre). Playing dish golf. Reading. Watching movies (especially fantasy and science fiction — I’m a huge Star Wars fan). Cheering on my football teams: Wisconsin and Alabama for college and the Green Bay Packers for the pros.

Family:
Jessica (wife), Micah and Gavin (sons)
  
Favorite Verse:
1 Timothy 4:12, “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” 
 
What I Like Best About My Ministry Is:
I have a passion to help other know God and follow Him well. Teenagers are perhaps some of the most overlooked and fun to work with in this area. For me, that is motivation enough for helping teens embrace a faith that will last a lifetime. I also have a passion to be a partner with parents as they raise their children to love God and His ways!
 
For Fun I Enjoy:
Camping, gardening and college football. Roll Tide!
