Our Pastor

 Welcome to Stratford Evangelical Lutheran Church! My name is Alex Zenk, and I am the Pastor here at Stratford Lutheran. I have been the Pastor here since December 2020.

I am a graduate of Sioux Falls Seminary with a  Master’s of Divinity. I have been married to my lovely wife, Janae, for over 16 years, and we have two amazing kids, Gracelynn Rose and Esiah Alexander. My hobbies include fishing, reading, and working out. In the past 5-7 years, I have become an avid reader of theology, studying various camps of thought before returning to my roots as a Lutheran. My journey to become a pastor has been an exciting story, and I would love to share with you in person how God saved a sinner like me. However, nothing would be more exciting to me than to hear your story and learn more about you and what God is doing in your life! Join us on Sunday mornings at 10 am to hear the Gospel preached.
