Our Pastor

Pastor Paul Krueger

Paul Krueger was ordained and installed as pastor at Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church on July 19, 2015.

Pastor Krueger grew up in Midland, MI and decided to pursue a career in the ministry after a weekend of job shadowing with the pastor of a congregation in Lansing, MI (also called Shepherd of the Hills!).  He attended Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN where he graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in classical language studies. From there, he went on to Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI and graduated with a Masters in Divinity in 2015.  

During his time at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, Pastor Krueger spent a full year interning at Cross of Life Lutheran Church in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, a year at St. Marcus Lutheran Church in Milwaukee Wisconsin, and a summer at Sure Foundation Lutheran Church in Queens, NY.  In May of 2015 he was assigned to Shepherd of the Hills.
Pastor Krueger loves interacting and growing in faith with the congregation at Shepherd of the Hills and with the people of Winchester, Stephens City, and the surrounding communities.
