Pastor Dan Wing
Pastor Wing: I was born in Milwaukee, WI. My parents sacrificed so that my older brother and I could attend Lutheran grade school. After my 8th grade year my family and I moved to Kalispell, MT. It was as a sophomore in high school that I realized I wanted to be a pastor. I attended Concordia University in Seward, NE between 1997 and 2002. I met my wife, Sara in 1997. We were married in June of 2000. I attended the seminary in St. Louis between 2002 and 2006. We have a daughter, Katie (01), a son, Matt (04), and another son, Andy (06). I have served Trinity Lutheran in Navasota, TX (1 year), Immanuel Lutheran in Sweet Springs, MO (11 years) and Trinity Lutheran Lincoln, NE (2 years). I am blessed far more than I could ever deserve.
My favorite Bible verse is “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8
