Our Pastor

 Welcome to Stratford Evangelical Lutheran Church! My name is Alex Zenk and I am the new Pastor here at Stratford Lutheran. Pastor Joe retired in November 2020, and later that month, Stratford Lutheran called me to serve as their pastor.

I am currently finishing my Master’s of Divinity at Sioux Falls Seminary, and I estimate to graduate in 2023. I have been married to my lovely wife, Janae for over 15 years now, and we have 2 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 interesting story, and I would love to share with you in person, how God saved a sinner like me. Come join us Sunday mornings at 10am to hear the Gospel preached.
