Pastor Werre was born on the mission fields of Zambia, Africa. He grew up, however, in the Midwest. In 1986, he graduated from Northwestern College (Watertown, WI) with a B.A. In 1990, he graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary (Mequon, WI) with a Masters of Divinity. He also married Sarah Peter and to this very day he is convinced that was one of the best decisions of his life. They have four children.
Pastor Werre’s ministry has been flavored with mission and evangelism work. His first Call was to a mission congregation an hour north of the Twin Cities. In 1997, he was Called to do exploratory mission work in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. He served as chairman of the Minnesota District Evangelism Committee (before moving to Canada) and currently serves on our Dakota-Montana Mission Board.
Pastor Werre began serving at Good Shepherd in 2008. When he isn’t “doing pastor stuff,” you might find him splitting wood for the fireplace, drinking coffee with Sarah at one of our local coffeehouses, playing a little guitar, or watching movies with his family.
