Paid Servants


Terry Krueger

Pastor Terry is a second career pastor. Born and raised in rural SW Minnesota, Pastor Terry was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran Church. At the tender age of 27, he moved to New York City. Hoping to find work there as a church musician, he realized he needed to find a steady job - which meant working in retail. This new-found career led him to many adventures, international travel, making lifelong friends, meeting celebrities. When the Great Recession hit in 2008-2009, the Holy Spirit led him to a new life: the ministry. After graduating from Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York in 2015 and serving two life-changing internships, the Spirit led him back to the Midwest. The call began at St. Mark's in 2018. Even though Nebraska wasn't what he expected, he soon realized the Spirit knew best for him and the church. Pastor Terry is more than happy with Nebraska and Bloomfield. Thanks be to God for Bloomfield, for Nebraska, and for St. Mark's!
