David W. Laabs


Greetings in Jesus’ Name!

I have been pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church since August 1998. I am a native of Wisconsin (New London) but spent the 20 years before coming to Kiel in the Pacific Northwest, nearly nine years in Alaska and just over ten years in Washington State. I am married to Sharon and we have four adult children, all of whom are teachers. We also have seven grandchildren.

I cordially invite you to visit our church or to contact me about any spiritual needs you may have.
