Hello, my name is Lane and I am honored to be the Pastor here at Wausa Evangelical Covenant Church. I was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska where I graduated from Parkview Christian School. I then attended the University of Nebraska - Lincoln where I got my undergraduate degree in Secondary Business Education.
In May of 2012 I graduated from UNL and married my high school sweetheart Stephanie (whose family is from Wausa). That fall I started teaching middle and high school business and computer classes and coaching football, basektball, and track while also serving as a pastoral intern at Calvary Community Church in Lincoln.
Through this internship God confirmed my calling to pastoral ministry. So while continuing to teach, coach, and work as a part-time youth pastor, I attended Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary where I received my Master of Arts in Christian Ministry degree.
In the Summer of 2016 I was offered a full-time Pastoral position as the College and Young Adults Pastor at Calvary. I thoroughly enjoyed my time discipling college students and young adults, leading Bible studies, and developing my preaching and teaching as a Pastor.
In the summer of 2019 God made it clear that He had something else in store for me and our family. After a few months of uncertainty, we learned about the opening for a Pastor here at Wausa Covenant Church. God worked in amazing ways to make it clear to my family and this amazing church family that this was His plan.
Together my wife and I have been blessed with two amazing kids, Cayson (6) and Adalyn (3). As a family we love spending time together outdoors, traveling, and just watching our kids grow and develop. Some of my personal interests include both playing and watching sports, drumming, watching "MasterChef" and "The Amazing Race" with my wife, and just being a husband and dad.
I am so thankful for this amazing church family and community here in Wausa. If we have not met, I would like to personally invite you to be my guest any Sunday at our church.
