Church Leadership
Pastor Aaron Schrimpf
The Apostle Paul says a pastor’s ministry is nothing more than “preaching Christ crucified.” Therefore, a pastor does not hesitate to proclaim the whole will of God to his people.
Aaron Schrimpf grew up in Minnesota on a dairy farm for much of his youth. After high school, he enlisted in the Navy for 4 years and was honorably discharged in the spring of 2009. He graduated from Martin Luther College with a Bachelor of Arts in 2014 and Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary with a Master of Divinity in 2018. He began serving St. Paul’s in July of 2018 as an associate with Pastor Sims. He enjoys board games, movies, hunting, and watching football. He and his wife, Victoria, have been blessed with two wonderful, energetic boys. Email:
