SENIOR PASTOR
DR. AL PIHRINGER

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 (cats Max and Misty, and dog Jane Eyre). Playing disk 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.
