The staff of Our Saviour is a combination of full time and part time servants as well as volunteer leaders.
Rev. Dave Hatch (Senior Pastor)
David Hatch was born and raised in Ames, Iowa. Prior to college studies, Pastor Dave worked construction, and had hopes of serving in law enforcement until his partial color blindness prevented that. He did not know what do do with his life. Through God’s Providence and a phone call from his sister, who was a kindergarten teacher in in Milwaukee, he enrolled in a college where, unbeknownst to him, many of his future classmates were studying to be pastors.
He received his education at Concordia College in Milwaukee; Concordia Teacher’s College, River Forest, Illinois; Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Indiana. His pastoral career began in 1982 following seminary, where he served as an Admissions Counselor at Concordia College in Bronxville, New York; parish pastor at Love Lutheran Church outside of Albany, New York. Pastor Dave has served Our Saviour since the spring of 1989.
In November of 1978, Pastor Dave was married to his special bride, Therese. They have two sons, Ryan (born in 1981) and Bret (born in 1983).
Rev. Schultz (Associate Pastor)
I have a passion for serving in God’s Church no matter where it may be found. Sometimes the church is in very normal everyday spaces like a sanctuary in a church building. Sometimes its on the back of a HUMV in an austere environment far away from home. Sometimes its gathered at a youth sports game as parents pray and lead a small devotion with other parents. God’s church is on the move and we, His Church, need to be moving along with it.
I am known as the Church Secretary and have been serving OSLC since 2005 after working for 18 years in the insurance industry. Although I was born in Stevens Point, WI as the third of four children, I was raised in De Pere, WI where my parents still reside. I currently live in Ashwaubenon with my husband of more than 25 years. I have two step-children and one grandchild.
My time at Our Saviour is spent greeting members and visitors, keeping the database and church calendar up to date, creating and printing worship bulletins, newsletters and more. I am involved in almost everything ‘church related’. If you have a question, stop in the office and ask; if I don’t have the answer, we can seek one out together.
I am the Director of Our Saviour Lutheran Church Preschool and have been serving since 2008. I also team teach both our preschool class as well as our 4K.
I was born in New Brunswick, New Jersey. I graduated from East DePere High School and received my bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin Green Bay.
I am now raising my family here. I have been married to my husband, Jeff, for 23 years and have 3 wonderful children: Joseph (born in 1997), Jonathon (born in 1999) and Jessica (born in 2002). We have been members of Our Saviour Luteran Church since 2004.
In my free time I enjoy being outdoors, camping, fishing and spending time with my family at our cabin.
It is truly a joy to work with children of this age group and teach them about the amazing power and love of Jesus Christ!
