Our Pastor



Rev. Timothy A. Prince

Ph.D Candidate - Concordia Seminary

Tim was born in the Chicago area, later moved to Arlington, TX, for preschool through elementary school years, and then to Idaho Falls, ID, for middle- and high-school years.  He graduated from college at Concordia College (formerly Concordia Teachers’ College, now Concordia University) in Seward, NE, where he met (and a few years later, married) Michelle Dobbertien.  After four years at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis (during which he served vicarage year in Edgerton, WI), he began ministry as a pastor placed in Bovey, MN (serving also as interim pastor in Marble, MN).


He later also served as pastor in Gresham, NE, and Davenport, NE, (together with serving as interim pastor for Nebraska congregations in Thayer, Waco, Friedensau, Ruskin, Superior, Chester and Hubbell, along the way).  He especially enjoyed his time serving as adjunct instructor at Concordia University in Seward, NE, teaching four courses over 13 

 semesters.  In 2013, he decided to go “back to school” to work on a Ph.D. degree in Exegetical Theology (a.k.a. biblical interpretation) at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis.  After he completed all his requirements of classes and exams for the Ph.D. program, his wife Michelle happened to receive a call to serve as Director of Parish Music at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and School in West Allis, WI (www.splcwa.org).  Tim has since been working on his research for his Ph.D. dissertation (on “Christ and Antichrist in Daniel 7 and 9”), as well as serving 14 months as interim pastor at Good Shepherd before being called in October 2018 to serve full-time there, which he joyfully continues.

Tim and Michelle have three grown children—Nathanael, who lives in Hebron, NE; Joel, who currently lives with them in East Troy; and Rebecca, who lives with her husband Nicolas and daughter Elaina in Centralia, IL.
