Welcome to the Village Church Lutheran.
My name is Paul Ernewein and I have been a pastor here at the Village since 2007. My wife's name is Peggy and we have 3 children.
I am a second career pastor, my first career was in the automotive parts industry. Peggy is a flight attendant for Southwest Airlines.
I have a few hobbies that I enjoy. I enjoy working on classic cars and really enjoy riding my Harley Davidson Road King motorcycle. We own two classic cars, a 1970 Chevy truck and a 1969 VW Beetle convertible. I also enjoy fishing, but don't have a boat, so if you do and need a fishing partner, let me know!
I'm blessed to be able to serve this church and community. The primary task of any pastor is to apply God’s Word to people’s lives. The main focus of my position is to build relationships with the staff, lay leaders, and members of our congregation and with the community by being a welcoming, visible presence as I provide vision and direction for the corporate life of the congregation. In that capacity, I’m responsible for our worship services, day-to-day ministry decisions and programming, and general oversight of the entire staff.
On behalf of our ministry staff, and our entire congregation, I extend a heart-felt welcome to you. I’m sure you will find The Village to be an exciting, welcoming, and nurturing place. Please contact me to let us know how we can serve you.
