“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
Pastor Odell began his service to Christ Lutheran in 2010. He is a graduate of Martin Lutheran College in New Ulm, MN and Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI. "There is nothing better than the sharing with people the reality of the gospel of Christ and the total forgiveness and peace that it brings," he says, "and to be able to do that for a living is a privilege beyond compare." In his free time Pastor Odell enjoys reading, fishing, sports, exploring new places, and getting out and enjoying the Northwoods with his wife, Sarah, and his three sons, Charlie, Simon, and Isaac.
Pastor Weber serves Christ Lutheran under a "retirement call" which started in July of 2022. His primary responsibilities include conducting worship services every other week, monthly visitation of those who are homebound, hospital calls, leading a ministry focused on senior members of Christ, and conducting Bible study. Says Pastor Weber, "It is a joy to serve God's people of all ages and a special privilege to continue to serve my Savior at this stage of life. My wife Pat and I live in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. We enjoy fishing together on both liquid and solid water. We are Packer fans as all sports enthusiasts should be. Hunting keeps meat in the freezer most of the time."
