Greetings in Christ,

            It is good to meet you.  I am Pastor Mark Wenzel and I am excited to be your Pastor at Grace Lutheran in Omro! It is also great to be back in the same Circuit I was a part of from 1996-1999!

            I was born in Milwaukee, WI on March 31, 1970 to Jane A. and Kenneth W. Wenzel. I was baptized in May, 1970 at Wellington Park Lutheran Church. We moved to rural Horicon/Mayville in 1978.  It was during this time that we joined St. John’s Lutheran Church in Mayville where I also attended St. John’s Lutheran School.  I attended Mayville High School, graduating in 1988.  After one year attending Bethany Lutheran College in Mankato, MN, I transferred to Concordia University Wisconsin to begin pre-seminary studies.  It was here that I met my future wife, Janelle (nee Peterson).  We married on July 10, 1993.  After graduation from CUW in May of 1992, I attended Concordia Seminary, St. Louis., graduating with a Master of Divinity degree in May of 1996, and I was ordained at my home congregation, St. John's, Mayville on June 23, 1996.  I served my vicarage (internship) at Grace Lutheran Church in DeWitt, Iowa from 1994-1995.

            I have been privileged and honored to serve congregations in Wisconsin and Illinois, most recently serving Peace Lutheran Church in Beaver Dam from 2008-2020.  I also served Immanuel/Trinity in Auroraville/Borth, WI; Prince of Peace in Sturgeon Bay, WI; and Trinity in Herscher, IL.

            Janelle and I are blessed with 3 adult children:  Katie, Chicago, IL; Aaron (Ashleigh) Beaver Dam; and Makayla, Beaver Dam. 

            We enjoy walking and biking, as well as wine tasting. I enjoy exercising and sports.  Janelle enjoys Hallmark movies and scrapbooking.  She also enjoys teaching, having taught in Lutheran Schools for over 25 years.

            It is truly a joy for me to proclaim the Good News of Jesus and to help equip God’s people for service in His kingdom!  I look forward to getting to know you.  May our Lord bless!

-Pastor Mark Wenzel
