Pastor Gadbaw is very personable; his laid-back and unassuming personality makes him approachable and helps him build relationships easily. While on vicarage, Pastor Gadbaw enjoyed working with youth in the church and the community. He also worked closely with St. Paul Munster, leading chapel and devotional gatherings. Pastor is known to attend high school games and events to meet and converse with the youth from the congregation and others. Building relationships with individuals is a strength, which bodes well with Trinity’s dynamic of team ministry.
Deeply passionate about Lutheran education, Pastor and his wife, Elizabeth, are looking forward to joining the church and school family at Trinity where their boys, James and Seth, will attend school, and they can all engage in the life and ministry of Trinity Lutheran Church and School.
