I am Pastor John H. Paustian. I have served at Good Shepherd since the beginning of 1986. My wife, Miriam, who teaches kindergarten in our school, is in her 25th year of serving here as a teacher. We have two sons, Pastor John Michael Paustian and Joshua Paustian. John and his wife Robin live in Morgan, MN. They have two children, Eleanor Nicole and John Henry. Our son, Joshua, lives in Bayview and works as an assistant to the production manager at Storage Battery Systems.
I find joy in helping people find their confidence in the faithful, unchanging love of the Good Shepherd who laid down his life for them.
As sheep, we are not equipped to pick the right path, protect ourselves from dangers or provide for our own needs. But we are not harassed and helpless! The Good Shepherd has found us—that is our joy!
Our mission is to tell others that he is looking for them.
