Pastor Steve Hoerr
Steve and Deborah Hoerr have been married since 1982. While the greater Cincinnati area was home for the majority of their lives, a work-related move took them to Columbus, Ohio for a few years prior to their move to the Seminary in Fort Wayne. Their four adult children are spread across the country with the eldest living in Denver, Colorado and the youngest living in Norfolk, Virginia. Steve and Debi have seven grandchildren who they enjoy tremendously.
After being honorably discharged from the Navy, Steve earned a Bachelor's in Accounting from the University of Cincinnati and later earned an MBA from Capital University in Columbus, Ohio. Steve began his working life in the Savings and Loan industry prior to beginning his twenty year career in the steel construction industry. From this background he entered Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana in 2006. He graduated with a Master of Divinity degree in the summer of 2010.
Steve and Debi moved into the area in August of 2010 and became a part of the congregation's life at St. Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church. Steve's Ordination and Installation as St. Peter's Pastor took place in September of 2010. Both Debi and Steve are very grateful to the congregation of St. Peter's for allowing them the opportunity of becoming a part of their lives.
