Pastor Rich Kramer
My wife Maren and I were married in 2000 and are parents to Joshua and Benjamin. Read more about Pastor Rich Kramer…
Joshua loves being physically active and enjoys quiet time to himself now and again. Benjamin is quite independent and often plays right along with his brother. Both of them are energetic and independent – they help us live life to the fullest! Maren is a professional social worker who is fluent in Spanish. She enjoys working with families of other cultures and uses her language and interpersonal skills to help children and families.
I was led to Faith Lutheran Church in 2007 after completing training in pastoral care and graduate studies in the Bible. I served churches in Hickson and Christine, ND, before attending graduate school, chaplaincy and pastoral care training in the Twin Cities. I was drawn here by the strength of the staff, the model of faith formation, and strong emphasis on worship.
