Christ died for all, that those who live
should no longer live for themselves but
for him who died for them
and was raised again.
(2 Corinthians 5:15)
Pastor Stephen Kuehl has been serving as the pastor of Shepherd of Peace since July of 2011. Although he is originally from Denver Colorado, Pastor Kuehl also spent time during his childhood living in Medellin Colombia (South America) as well as in Milwaukee Wisconsin.
Pastor Kuehl earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in 2004 from Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. He then went on to earn his Master of Divinity degree in 2009 from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI.
Prior to his seminary graduation, Pastor Kuehl spent a year as a "vicar" (i.e. student pastor) at Grace Lutheran Church in Falls Church, VA, a suburb of Washington DC. While he was there, he met his wife, Charis. They were married in June of 2009 and have been blessed with three daughters.
Pastor Kuehl spent the first two years of his ministry serving at Michigan Lutheran Seminary in Saginaw, MI, one of the two high schools that WELS operates for the singular purpose of encouraging young people to enter the full-time ministry of the gospel. While he was there, Pastor Kuehl assisted with campus worship and the spiritual care of the students. He also helped oversee a dormitory of approximately 125 students and had teaching, coaching, and advisory responsiblities.
Pastor Kuehl's interests include traveling, guitar, fitness, and learning. His greatest interest, however, is God's all-powerful Word and serving people with its powerful message.
