๐ŸŒŸMeet Pastor Ben Kaiser๐ŸŒŸ Letโ€™s celebrate Pastor Ben Kaiser, our dedicated Associate Pastor at Emmanuel for the last 10 years!๐Ÿ™Œ His passion? Sharing the joy of Jesus and His care with everyone he meets! ๐ŸŒˆ Pastor Ben is a part of the greatest family ever! God adopted him into His family, giving him a share of His eternal inheritance through baptism back in August of 1981. How about you; when's your Baptismal birthday? If you don't have one yet, you've got our God's loving invitation right now (Acts 2:38-39)! Ben's journey started at Concordia University Nebraska, where he honed his skills as an educator. ๐ŸŽ“ Teaching 5th graders in Jefferson City, MO, Ben discovered his calling to spread God's word in new ways. Guided by faith, he pursued pastoral training at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, and served as Associate Pastor at King of Kings Lutheran in Mason, Ohio, from 2010-2014 before joining our Emmanuel family. Outside of church, Benโ€™s home life is filled with love and laughter. ๐Ÿก Blessed with an incredible family, he enjoys camping, fishing, and quality time with his wife Kelli and four amazing kids, Noah (5th grade), Elijah (3rd grade), Sophia (Kindergarten), and 2-year-old Luke. ๐ŸŒฟ Let's express our appreciation to Pastor Ben Kaiser, a true beacon of faith and love in our community! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ฌ #MeetOurTeam #TeamEF

๐ŸŒŸMeet Krista Branz๐ŸŒŸ ๐Ÿ‘‹ Say hi to Miss Krista, our School Secretary at Emmanuel-Faith since 2017; she plays a vital role in ensuring the smooth operation of our school. ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’ผ What does Krista love most about her position? It's the joy of organization and communication, alongside the opportunity to support our mission of building disciples of Christ and sharing Jesus's love with our school community. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’– After Krista graduated from UNK with a major in social work, her journey took a different turn after becoming a stay-at-home mom. When the opportunity for the school secretary position arose, Krista initially hesitated; but a persistent nudging from the Holy Spirit led her to step out of her comfort zone and embrace the role. She firmly believes that it was God's will that brought her here. ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ™Œ Krista shares a home with her husband, Darrel of nearly 16 years, two cats, and sons Clayton, Reese & Wyatt who attend Emmanuel-Faith. Darrel serves as a math teacher coach at York High School.๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ Let's express our gratitude for Krista's dedication and the invaluable role she plays in our school community! ๐Ÿ’ฌ๐ŸŒŸ #MeetOurTeam #TeamEF #SchoolLife
