Welcome Rev. David Hormann – Executive Director for Missions and Ministry
Grace and Peace to you, in Christ Jesus! I am David Hormann. I come to serve here as a man with a past – past experiences, joys, hurts and life. Some answers were learned; definitely a lot of questions still unanswered. My past began in Millington Tennessee; the place of my birth and my earliest memories. Life continued with a sojourn to Minnesota when I was still a youngster. Life there did include bitter winters, but also a time of learning from great women and men of God at Trinity Lutheran Church and School in Waconia and Lutheran High School in Mayer. My experiences and times in the blessings of our Lutheran schools formed me be a δοῦλος Χριστοῦ – servant of Christ . For that I am eternally grateful.
During that time, precisely the fourth grade, I met my future bride, Cindy. Our first date was in our junior year of high school. We were married in 1984. God blessed us with two incredible sons. We all worked in the family excavating business; yep I was a grave digger and septic installer. And life was great. Forty acres, chubby children, respect in the church and community, seats on various boards and great responsibilities were our life. Then there was a new pull, a pull that moved us all to Saint Louis for seminary. Our eldest son was not pleased. Maybe some of you can relate.
