Pastor Erik Janke
I was born in San Jose, CA and spent most of my childhood in Modesto, CA. Growing up in a pastor's family, I decided to become a pastor early on in life.
I went to Martin Luther College to receive my bachelor of arts in biblical languages, then to Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary to receive my master of divinty degree. In May of 2018, I was called to plant a church in Bluffton, SC.
It was also in May of 2018 that I married my wife, Amanda (née Smith). The Lord has also blessed us with a daughter, Evelyn (2).
I've been blessed to serve a number of mission fields, including Russia, Alaska, and Atlanta.
