Using Our Gifts
Church Staff & Leadership
My name is Pastor Robert Hein and I love serving God's people at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.
Sharing the good news of Jesus is a joy and delight.
I have been serving at Good Shepherd for 11 years.
I have been blessed to be married to my wife Carolyn, and we have three wonderful children, Eric, Rachel, and Laura.
My goal is to help us grow in our connection with the Lord through his Word, to build connections with one another through fellowship and joyful service, and to build connections with the people of our community through the power of the Gospel
I invite you to come and find out more about Jesus and his good news for our lives!
I am Pastor Mueller. I went to high school at Luther Preparatory School, where I met my wife Holly. We graduated from there in 2007. Afterward, we both attended Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. We graduated in 2011; Holly with an Early Childhood Education degree while I continued to Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary to become a pastor, graduating in 2015.
From the seminary I was assigned to Living Hope Lutheran Church in Peoria, IL. I served there six years. In 2021, I was called to be the youth and family pastor here at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and School.
My wife and I have five children. Lilie, Matthew, Eli, Daisy, and Ivy. We enjoy the outdoors including hiking, boating, fishing, hunting, swimming, and the beach.
I hope to be a blessing to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and School as we grow spiritually, serve God, and share Jesus together.
In 2003 Good Shepherd congregation called me to join their pastoral staff. I had retired from full time service as the WELS's Vice President of Mission and Ministry. Before that had been 37 years of pastoral ministry beginning with the first mission outreach in Canada and then for many years in one of our largest congregations.
Nothing brings more joy than to preach the good news of salvation, or to lead the ever growing Senior Bible Class into deeper knowledge of our Savior, or to comfort the sick and shut ins with the promises of our loving Lord.
Thank you and the Lord for giving me the opportunity to share that joy with you as we grow together in his Word.
Each one should use whatever Gift he was received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms. - 1 Peter 4:10
