Pastor Zamzow received his bachelor’s degree from Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN in 2014 and began studying at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary that fall. He spent his vicar year (pastoral internship) in Grove City, Ohio at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church. In May of 2018 he graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary with a Master of Divinity. These eight years of education involve rigorous study of God’s Word in the original languages of Hebrew (OT) and Greek (NT). This education is required of all Wisconsin Synod Lutheran Pastors.
Pastor enjoys the study of History: Ancient near East, Medieval, Maritime, Ecclesiastical are his favorite. Away from the desk, he likes fast cars, classic rock, hiking, fishing, hunting and trying to golf. Pastor is married to his college sweetheart Marina. They were married the year before seminary started. They now have 2 children Otto and Ivana – as well as two cats Marlee and Freyja.
He’s said that the most enjoyable parts of ministry are preaching and teaching. On almost a daily basis he gets to share who Jesus IS. Not who people wish he was, or think he should be, but rather who Jesus himself says he is, in his own Word – Holy Scripture.
