Meet our New Pastor and his wife.


August 17 has been described by some as one of the best attended, most productive and happiest Sundays in recent memory for members of Peace Lutheran.  Over three hundred people attended the two services followed by a near capacity Special Congregational Meeting during which Peace members voted nearly unanimously to extend a call to Pastor Travis Wilson to serve as our Senior Pastor.   News of the voting result was met by cheers of joy, applause, and a standing ovation.  What a wonderful way to start a new chapter in the history of Peace Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Pastor Wilson and his wife, Kristin,  have purchased a home in South Haven and will soon become residents of our community.



Introducing Pastor Travis and Kristen Wilson

Pastor Travis was born and raised in Roanoke, Virginia.  After graduating from high school, he attended Roanoke College where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Theology.  He and his wife, Kristen, met in college and married soon after graduation.  Travis worked in the corporate world for several years following his graduation before moving to Columbus, Ohio for Seminary.  Pastor Travis attended Trinity Lutheran Seminary where he earned a Masters of Divinity Degree.  During the course of his study, Pastor Travis served as a student chaplain at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and completed his internship at First Lutheran Church in Muskegon, Mi.

Pastor Wilson received a call to serve as Pastor at St James Lutheran Church in Jackson, Michigan in July 2012 where his ministry focus has been on spiritual and pastoral care to the membership, reaching out to the community to nurture the disciples of Christ, and leading the worship, Christian Education and special services.  He will be completing his ministry at St James and moving to Peace Lutheran in October.

Pastor Travis has served on the Board of Directors for Love in the Name of Christ and the National Federation of the Blind of Michigan-Jackson Chapter.  His wife, Kristen, works in mortgage note review at a bank and has been an active volunteer in hospice and Relay for Life.

Pastor Travis loves to play music on the guitar or bass and enjoys conversations over a cup of coffee or tea. Kristen loves cardio-drumming, yoga, painting on canvas, and enjoys coffee and tea as well.  Together they love movies, traveling, and being with their dog, Foxy.

Please join us in extending a warm welcome to Pastor Travis and Kristen.
