David Brandt

Associate Pastor

Pastor David Brandt has been our pastor at St. John’s since the summer of 2017.  He is originally from St. Louis, MO.  When he was 9 he moved to Arizona and later his
family moved to Utah where he enjoyed exploring God’s beautiful creation in the scenery that those states offer.

After graduating from Arizona Lutheran Academy, he went to Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN.  In addition to receiving an education, it was there that he also met his wife, Heide. After marriage, they lived in Heide's home town of Saginaw, MI for a couple of years.

After college David attended Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI, which included a vicar year (internship) at Resurrection Lutheran Church in Aurora, IL.
After graduation from the seminary, David was privileged to serve for 9 years as a pastor at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Tomah, WI.

David and Heide have been blessed with 6 children: Max, Hailey, Ella, Lillie, Abel and Pearl.  David and Heide enjoy traveling together, playing games together, and watching their children develop and grow, especially in the grace and knowledge of their Savior.

Pastor Brandt’s favorite Bible verse is Romans 8:1 “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”  He would love the opportunity to tell you why or to give you any other direction or comfort from God’s Word that he can.
