Pastor Russ and Family

The Reverend K. Russell Crouthamel was called to serve our parish in the ministry of Word and Sacrament in January of 2018. Pastor Russ graduated from Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, OH in May of 2014. Prior to being called to our parish, Pastor Russ served as pastor at Emanuel Lutheran Church in Dayton, IA. He and his wife, the Reverend Sarah Aasheim, and their son Robbie, are excited to come to Punxsutawney and Trade City.

Pastor Russ and his family moved to the area during March and he began conducting services for the Parish on Easter Sunday (April 1st).
