Glen Schmiege
244-3045 ext. 13

Pastor Schmiege spent his boyhood on a small farm in rural Michigan. He is the youngest of three brothers. Because he thought he might want to become a teacher, he enrolled at Michigan Lutheran Seminary, a WELS supported preparatory high school.  He continued his education at Northwestern College in Watertown, Wisconsin.  Having decided to pursue the pastoral ministry, he completed his studies at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, Wisconsin.

Prior to coming to Eastside, Pastor Schmiege served a small mission congregation in Keystone Heights, Florida.

Pastor Schmiege and his wife, Beth, have been blessed with three sons and three daughters. Pastor Schmiege enjoys travel and is an avid spectator of sports at any level.

Pastor Schmiege values the diversity of gifts that God has given to the members of Eastside and the willingness of so many people to use those gifts to contribute to the ministry of the Gospel here. He and his family are especially grateful for the educational resources and opportunities that Eastside provides for families.

I'll tell you a little of my background.  I was born to an English Mom and an American Father.  During my growing up years I lived in Milwaukee where I attended Mt. Lebanon Lutheran Grade School and Wisconsin Lutheran High School.  I graduated from Dr. Martin Luther College in New Ulm , Minnesota which is our training school for the teaching ministry.  Upon graduation I served  at St. John-St. James in Reedsville, Wisconsin, then at St. John's in Newtonburg, Wisconsin, and presently here at Eastside Lutheran.  In addition to my teaching call, I also serve as Deaconess where I minister to congregation members in a variety of fascets.  My family consists of my husband Allen, my two children, and my son-in-law.  I am a lover of animals of which I have six and I also sport a motorcycle which I love driving. May the Lord bless and keep you.
