Email - vnatzke@wctc.net

Our rector is Pastor Vicki Natzke. Most men who are rectors go by ''Father.'' Women clergy go by a variety of different names, and Vicki has chosen ''Pastor'' although most people call her Vicki. Pastor Vicki has been at St. John's since April, 2004. She was born in Wisconsin Rapids and was baptized and confirmed at St. John's. She is married to Dave, a journalist who works from home and they have two grown sons: Ryne and his wife, Phoebe and Ty. Prior to going to Nashotah House Episcopal Seminary and ordination, Vicki was a teacher for the Iola-Scandinavia School District. Vicki is part-time and does not celebrate every Sunday. Rest assured; we have the Eucharist every Sunday, as we are blessed to have supply clergy who are available to officiate.

St. John's is blessed to have two very talented organists to play our J.W.Walker tracker pipe organ. Kristopher Gasch has been with us since 2007. He is a Wisconsin Rapids native and works for Fey Publishing. He is very active in the community--especially if it involves music. He is also a very talented tenor and sings in area choirs. Christian Stromley also serves as an organist at St. John's when Kristopher is unavailable.
