Pastor Peter Snyder


Cell: 608 479-0778

Pastor Snyder is a born and raised Wisconsinite who has served at St. Paul since 2009. He and his wife Jenell (also born and raised in Wisconsin) have been married since 1993. They have 4 adult children and 5 grandchildren. They love this area and this part of Wisconsin, both the people and the countryside. They are thankful to be a part of the ministry of St. Paul, sharing the good news of forgiveness and life in Jesus.

Besides spending time with family and horses (Jenell's passion), the Snyders enjoy the outdoors and traveling. Wisconsin sports are also something Pastor Snyder likes to follow.

Pastor Jacob Limpert


Cell: 608 462-7601

Jacob Limpert was born in Tomball, TX, and grew up in Rochester, MN, the fourth of six kids. He graduated from St. Croix Lutheran High School (West St. Paul, MN) in 2012, and from Martin Luther College (New Ulm, MN) in 2016. From there he went on to continue his training for pastoral ministry at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI. He served his vicar year, 2018-2019, at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church in Green Bay, WI. There he met his wife, Jessica. The two were united in marriage on June 6, 2020.

Jacob graduated from WLS on May 21, 2020 and was assigned to serve at St. Paul's in Wonewoc. He was ordained and installed as pastor at St. Paul's on July 12, 2020. He has been blessed to begin his ministry here and in Hillsboro as the formation of our current multi-site congregation was made official on the tail-end of his first year of service. He looks forward to seeing how God will continue to bless the people of our communities through our continuing gospel work.

Together with his wife, Pastor Limpert enjoys getting cozy with a good book (sci-fi and fantasy especially), hiking, gardening, and taking care of their cats and dogs. He also has a love of learning, often in the form of trivia to be dished out in Bible study tangents.
