Pastor Paul Schroeder

      Paul Schroeder grew up in the town of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, about 30 minutes outside of Milwaukee.  As a teenager he attended Northwestern Prep School in Watertown about 12 miles away from home.  He graduated in 1987 and attended Northwestern College, located on the same campus, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 1991.  After college he studied at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon Wisconsin and graduated with a Masters of Divinity in 1995.  

     The first 15 years of his ministry were served  in Wisconsin at a small church in the town of Rock Springs.   In December of 2010 King of Kings called him to serve in Apache Junction with a focus on outreach.

     Pastor is married and has two children. Pastor met his wife, Julie, who lived in Texas at the time, but was also attending the same Prep School in Watertown. Their son Everett is 22, and daughter Maddie is 19.

     Pastor’s interests include sports, music and art. He enjoys playing golf in Arizona and would love to explore and enjoy the beauty of the Southwest.  

Pastor John Quandt

        King of Kings called Pastor Quandt to serve as our retired pastor in January of 2016.  He has served congregations in Tyler, TX, Kearney, NE and West Des Moines, IA.  After spending the first part of his retirement in Door County, WI. he made Apache Junction his home in 2014.

       After graduating from Michigan Lutheran Seminary, a high school that prepares people to be pastors and teachers in our church body, he spent a few years as a police officer for the city of Detroit.  Later he worked in the insurance industry and then decided to study for the ministry in his early 30's.  He moved his wife Sandie and their four children to Minnesota and graduated from Bethany Lutheran college in Mankato, MN with a Bachelor of Arts.  4 years later he graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary and was called to his first congregation in Texas

       Pastor and Sandie enjoy living in Apache Junction, but love visits from their eight grandchildren. 

       Pastor is hoping to do some fly fishing and can be found from time to time beating Pastor Schroeder in a round of golf.  He's 2000 miles from Detroit but still watches the Tigers, Lions and Red Wings.
