Miscellaneous Information:

Born in the middle of the last century, 1955, Pastor Greg Hermanson grew up in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, a sprawling residential community on the outskirts of Madison. He experienced all the spills and chills of growing up in a home with five siblings. There was never a quiet moment. He attended Sun Prairie Public Grade School and High School. There he especially enjoyed the choral and drama productions.

After high school Greg attended the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater for two years. Deciding to change his major and his college Pastor Hermanson then began his theological training at Northwestern College of Watertown, Wisconsin. At the WELS’ former college that prepared future pastors he studied the ancient languages of Greek, Hebrew, Latin and German. He also studied New Testament and Old Testament theology, history, humanities and the arts.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts Degree, Greg continued his preparation for ministry with further biblical and theological studies at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, Wisconsin. After three years of classroom work and one year of practical in-the-field training, Pastor Hermanson graduated in May 1985 with a Masters of Divinity Degree. From the seminary he was then assigned to Faith Lutheran of Antioch by the WELS assignment committee. Pastor has been serving the people of Antioch ever since. His current areas of pastoral work involve counseling, visitation, support groups along with teaching and preaching. The years have been quick and the memories sweet.

In 1984 Greg married Carol Tietz. Carol teaches at Shoreland Lutheran High School. Their three children are each graduates of Faith Lutheran Elementary School, Shoreland and Wisconsin Lutheran College, Milwaukee. Daughter Rachel resides in Milwaukee with husband, Matt Blum and Greg’s grandchildren Avrey, Levi and Haley. Son Ben is completing his residency in Emergency Medicine at Froedert in Milwaukee. While son Joel and his wife Monica also live in Milwaukee where he enjoys working in the artistic end of a marketing firm. The Lord has been very good throughout the years.
