Pr. Bryan Lagerstam

God brought me to Beaver Dam to be St. John’s pastor in February of 2016.

I was born in northern Illinois, and moved around a lot when I was a kid. I even attended 2nd grade in Beaver Dam and my family were members of St. John’s for that year. But then we moved away again and I continued the moving from place to place that was a great part of my life. Eventually, I graduated from Augustana College in Rock Island in 2003 and from Wartburg Seminary in Dubuque in 2007. As a pastor, I continued moving around and served three different parishes in Nebraska and Iowa before moving back home to Wisconsin.

Along the winding way, I started a family. I married Kristen in 2005, in the midst of my seminary education. We have two children together (along with our cat).

Here at St. John’s, I’ve found a gathering of fun-loving, mission-minded Christians longing to grow in faithfulness to Jesus and live in his kingdom. Come join us!

God bless,
Pr. Bryan
