Engler 1 CroppedOur Pastor

The Rev. Tom Engler has been serving The Lutheran Church of the Prince of Peace as pastor since July 2014.

 

He was born August 17, 1964 in Aurora, IL, and baptized into Jesus and reborn on August 30th.

He was raised and formed in Nebraska and attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where he

received a degree in Chemistry.

 

He graduated from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, 1990 after doing a vicarage in Los Angeles, CA.

He has since served parishes in New York City,

South Korea, and most recently in Philadelphia.


As a missionary in Korea Pastor Engler taught the Hebrew language and the Bible at Luther University and seminary, and assisted with the Korean Lutheran Hour. During his

time in Philadelphia, he also served the LCMS as an

“Urban strategist,” and was the executive director for Philadelphia Lutheran Ministries. Before coming to Menomonee Falls, he was also a member of the LCMS Board for National Missions.

 

Pastor Engler is married to Youngshin (April 15, 1989) and they have been blessed with five

children: Abel (graduated Penn State), Noah (graduated UNL), Adam (attends Slippery Rock Univ.),

Eden (Menomonee Falls HS), and Abram (Zion Lutheran School).

 

Pastor Engler loves theology, talking about and teaching the Word of God, talking and visiting

with people. His favorite season is not spring, summer, winter or fall, but football. He would

love to meet and talk with you, maybe over coffee! Stop by the church or give an email to set

a time. He would love to pray for any needs you might have, and desires to be a faithful

pastor for you.

 

When he was confirmed, his father, who was also his Pastor, chose Romans 1:16 as his

confirmation verse. This passage has also helped form him: “I am not ashamed of the Gospel,

for it is the power of God for salvation to EVERYONE who believes.”
