Nate Sutton

Pastor

I grew up in Watertown, Wisconsin where I attended high school at Northwestern Preparatory School. After that, I attended Martin Luther College and Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary. During my seminary years, I did my vicar (intern) year in Thornton, Colorado, as well as spending a summer serving a church in Alexandria, Louisiana.

After graduation, I served as a teacher at Luther Preparatory School in Watertown, Wisconsin, for two years. Then, God blessed me with the opportunity to serve at King of Kings Lutheran Church in Wasilla, Alaska, for five years. Most recently I served as a high school teacher of religion and Latin and football coach at St. Croix Lutheran High School in West St. Paul, Minnesota from 2010-2015. It was such a joy and privilege to be a positive influence in the lives of the next generation of leaders.

I love spending time with my family, traveling, hiking, and working to present the message of Jesus in as clear a way as possible.

My wife, Sara, and I met in 2003. We married in 2005. Now we live in San Antonio with our four kids (Meredith 10, Eli 8, Emily 5, and Jack 2). We are so excited to be in Texas and especially excited to be part of the thriving, family-oriented community of Our Savior Lutheran Church. We can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store as we share the message of Jesus.

David Kasischke

Staff Minister

Staff Minister David Kasischke was born and raised in northeaster Michigan, the middle child of five. He developed a love for foreign languages in high school, and went to Michigan State University to become a French teacher. Realizing that high school teaching was not his calling, David graduated with a dual degree in French and Russian and was hired by the U.S. Department of Defense as a language analyst. He spent over 33 years with DoD, living in and visiting several areas of the country and the world, before retiring in 2010. In 2011 he was called by Our Savior Lutheran to be a staff minister for the congregation, a call that he cheerfully accepted. Concurrently wih the call, he is studying to earn a certification from the Wisconsin Synod in staff ministry. Serving the Lord in this way is David's greatest joy; being able to gow in God's Word and share the good news of sins forgiven in Jesus Christ is the highest privilege.

Jennifer Semanko

Teacher

Jennifer Semanko is originally from the small south texas town of Riviera. In June of 1996, she and her husband George moved to San Antonio to begin their young adult lives. Jennifer was invited to attend a worship service at Our Savior Lutheran by a member and she and her husband became members shortly thereafter. Jennifer's happiest moments at Our Savior have been seeing her husband's baptism at 38 years of age and the renewal of her wedding vows before God to celebrate her 15th wedding anniversary. In 2012, Jennifer was offered a teaching position at Our Savior Preschool Academy. She thoroughly enjoys building relationships with her students, their parents, and the community.
