Meet the Pastor

Pastor Seth Korte




Pastor Korte has been the pastor of St. Paul Lutheran Church since November 2023. Prior to joining this congregation, Pastor Korte served as: a chaplain for a regional trauma center and health network in Fort Wayne, IN, the pastor of a congregation in Fort Wayne, IN, a pastor of a congregation in Richmond, VA, a wildlife biologist for the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE, and a campus ministry leader for the University Lutheran Chapel, Lincoln, NE.


Pastor Korte enjoys meeting folks where they are at in life and seeing Jesus draw them into His community. In addition to celebrating God’s Word and Sacraments with others in worship, Pastor Korte enjoys working with the congregation to better learn where God is inviting us to grow as disciples of Jesus who live their faith out in practical and relational ways.  He can often be found meeting with someone for coffee, a meal, or causal conversation out in the community.


In his spare time, Pastor Korte enjoys meeting with friends, running, hiking, fishing, or painting. 


Most of all, Pastor Korte enjoys being Dad to his two sons, Evan and Aaron, and helping them grow to love Jesus and experience the world around them.  They continue to help him see the world through fresh eyes and experiences every week.  Adventure is also awaiting!
