He prepared for the ministry in Concordia College, at Springfield, Illinois, graduating from the theological course in 1911. His first charge was at Columbia, Illinois, where he remained for two years, but in 1913 he came to Kenesaw, where he has since remained. He is not only zealous in promoting the spiritual growth of the church but is also capable in furthering its material interests, and he has the hearty cooperation of his parishioners in carrying on the various phases of church work.
