Pastor David h. birsching

IN-REACH pastor

Pastor Birsching grew up in Michigan, but graduated Northwestern College in Watertown, Wisconsin in 1986.  He then continued his education at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary. When he graduated from Wisconsin Synod Seminary in the summer of 1990, he accepted the call to St. Paul Lutheran Church.  He’s been here ever since!  He has a great love for his Lord, and for people.  For this reason, he rejoices in the opportunity to be a pastor which allows him to actively serve both!  He delights in preaching, teaching and sharing God’s Word, and is approaching his 30th anniversary in the ministry.
