Carl Schroeder


Pastor Carl Schroeder began his service at St. Peter’s in 2016. Previously he served congregations in Baraboo, Wisconsin Rapids, Appleton and Fort Worth, TX.  He and his wife Stacey have been married for over 20 years.  The Lord has blessed them with four children: Noah (17), Hannah (14), and Rebekah (11) and Isaiah (8). With two high schoolers enrolled at Luther Prep School in Watertown, and two enrolled at St. Peter’s Lutheran in Sturgeon Bay, there is plenty to juggle for academics, music, athletics, and other activities.

Pastor Schroeder must really like school, because he went to college twice, but mainly just to meet more people and spend time with friends. He is big into listening to music, dressing up like comic book heroes, and cheering for some good sports teams as well as some really bad sports teams. He golfs poorly, but seems to like riding around on a golf cart and telling jokes during other people’s backswing. He loves talking with everyone so don’t get him started on travel or food or his kids or trivia and NEVER bring up 80’s power ballads, (unless you want him to sing). Maybe someday he’ll grow old, but probably never grow up. He likes being a big kid too much…

Favorite Bible Verse: “When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.” (Colossians 3:4).
