I graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, Wisconsin with a Master of Divinity in 2000. The 1998-1999 year of my seminary training was spent as a pastoral intern at Trinity Lutheran in Minocqua.
Upon graduation from the seminary, I was assigned to serve Abundant Life Lutheran Church in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. I served Abundant Life until July of 2006, when I took a call to serve Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church and School in Redding, California. I accepted the call to Risen Savior in the fall of 2011...my family and I arrived in the Savannah area in December of 2011.
My wife, Angela, and I were married on August 14, 1999. She graduated from Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minnesota in 1999 with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. She teaches the 4 year-old preschool class here at Risen Savior Christian Academy. Angie is musically inclined and loves to “tickle the ivories”. She also enjoys singing, crafting, cooking and listening to her children laugh. The Lord has blessed our life together with five children: Caleb (17), Abigail (15), Naomi (12), Lydia (9), and Asher (7).
The Pechman family enjoys hiking, backpacking and camping…and a good scavenger hunt. We also enjoy rooting for their favorite sports teams throughout the year. We love living in the South and love the people and ministry of Risen Savior. We looking forward to meeting you!
