Vacancy Pastor Aaron Jensen
Pastor Jensen is serving as Petra's vacancy pastor until we again have our own. He has served at St. Peter’s in Monticello since 2021, having previously served as a pastor in Michigan. Originally from Wisconsin, Pastor and his wife Carolyn have three sons.
Pastor Jensen holds a BA in Greek and Hebrew (Martin Luther College, 2011), an MDiv in pastoral ministry (Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, 2015), an STM in New Testament (Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, 2021), and is currently a PhD candidate in New Testament Greek (South African Theological Seminary).
“Pastor” means “shepherd,” so as pastor, Pastor Jensen’s role is to shepherd our congregation using God’s Word, such as by preaching, teaching, and counseling.
