Aaron Glaeske

Pastor, Victoria Campus

Pastor Aaron Glaeske graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in 1993, and has served congregations and educational institutions in Wisconsin, Virginia, Tennessee, California and Texas during that time. He accepted the call to Redeemer as the Victoria campus pastor in 2017.

Pastor Glaeske is an avid hunter and fisherman, loves football and baseball, and enjoys reading books about history, faith, outreach and church leadership. His wife, Kristin, is a high school English teacher, who has taught nearly every level of the subject. When she’s not doing schoolwork, Kristin enjoys reading and cooking. Together, Pastor Glaeske and Kristin have a son, Lucas, who enjoys sports, reading and video games.

Tom Nicholson

Vicar, Edna Campus

Tom Nicholson is in his third year of seminary training, serving as "vicar" (intern) at Redeemer. Born and raised in Wisconsin in a town not much larger than Edna, Tom is excited to call Edna his home for the year. He is passionate about ministry in general, but youth ministry holds a special place in his heart. In his free time, you'll probably find him out sightseeing, reading out on the deck, writing, or playing videogames. Tom is looking forward to all the new experiences and opportunities to serve that Edna, Victoria, and the state of Texas offer.
