 Pastor Nathan Strobel                                  
Pastor Nathan Strobel has served in the public ministry for 27 years—eight as a parish pastor in Bay City, MI and Tallahassee, FL, sixteen as campus pastor at Wisconsin Lutheran College, and the last three as VP of Student Life and Dean of Students at the college. Nathan and his wife, Jean, live in Cedarburg and are the proud parents of two daughters and sons-in-law and three grandchildren. Nathan’s passion for ministry has always focused on shepherding God’s people to love and trust the Creator and Savior God not only with the eternal, but with the temporal as well. “We have a practical God whose love can be trusted every step of the way.” Nathan and Jean are members at Risen Savior Lutheran Church in Milwaukee.

In her spare time she enjoys traveling, music, golf, sailing, and walking her dog Kipper.

Marilyn Sievert
Marilyn is inspired by her high calling as a child of God. Being God's girl is grounding and lends true purpose to life. As a wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, the possibilities and challenges to learn, grow, serve and contribute are endless. As a result, she enthusiastically dabbles in many things to be of use to others, especially when it involves growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior!

Help Us Give Children Shoes!
THE SHOE THAT GROWS & Christians Foward Southeast Asia

$15 = A pair of long lasting shoes
Something as simple as a pair of shoes can make a BIG difference in the life of a child living in poverty. A pair of shoes helps keep a child healthy, in school, and in a position to succeed. 

The Shoe That Grows has been designed to grow with the foot of a child, adjusting and expanding and lasting for years. Can you help us get pairs to distribute to kids in need in Southeast Asia? Help us show God's love by helping take care of an earthly need as well as sharing the gospel with each pair distributed. We are sending shoes with the organization Christians Forward Southeast Asia to distribute to children in need in Southeast Asia. 

If you can't make a donation at this point, help us reach and surpass our goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter!
Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to our page!
