Meet Pastor Peter Unnasch

Peter Unnasch grew up on a dairy farm just outside the village of Nodine in Winona County, MN. He is a graduate of Luther High School in Onalaska, WI, Northwestern College in Watertown, WI, and Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI. He served his vicar year in Virginia, served as Assistant to the Dean of Students at Dr. Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN, and served congregations in Utah and Nebraska before accepting the Call to serve at St Lucas in 2008.

In 1991, Pastor Unnasch married Tracy Redlin of Watertown, SD. They are blessed with three children: Naomi, Sam and Paul.

“It’s really a joy to serve with the brothers and sisters here at St Lucas,” says Pastor Unnasch. “And Bay View – it has a small neighborhood feel and yet it has so many opportunities for sharing Jesus. One of the greatest thrills in ministry is to sit down with someone who has never really heard exactly what Jesus has done. You can’t put a price on moments like that.”
