Our Staff

Rev. Tommy Richter

Pastor

Pastor Tommy Richter is a philosopher, poet, drummer, and avid walking enthusiast. He has a BA in Philosophy and Religion from Ursinus College, 2007, and an MDiv from the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, 2013. Ordained in 2016, his first call was to the remote Alaskan Native village of Shishmaref—the northern-most Lutheran Church in the ELCA, just ten miles south of the arctic circle. His second call was at a large suburban congregation in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota just south of the Twin Cities. And now he is excited to become a Yooper here in Manistique; where he lives with his wife and their cat.
