June 11, 2022

Rev. Jon and Kay Brohn – Christ the Rock, Farmington, N.M. (2:00 p.m. CT)

Missionary Jon and his wife Kay spent 25 years in the ministry at places like Northwestern Prep School, Christ the Lord in Houston, Tex., and Salem in Stillwater, Minn., before Jon accepted the call to serve as a home missionary at Christ the Rock in Farmington, N.M.

They have been married for 30 years. Kay currently works at Ku-Tips Nursery. They have three children. Jake is the pastor at Bethany, Gibsonia, PA, along with his wife Rachel and their children, Emma and Joel. Hannah teaches 5-6 grade at St. Paul’s, Columbus, OH. Matt is currently living with them in Farmington and is working to finish his teaching license from Martin Luther College.

Christ the Rock is a friendly, outgoing home mission congregation. Their goal is to find different ways to serve our community, to build bridges with individuals, and share the good news of Jesus’ love as much as they can.

Rev. Luke Wolfgramm – Missionary to Russia (2:45 p.m. CT)

Missionary Luke Wolfgramm graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in 1997, was assigned to Novosibirsk, Russia, and has been there ever since. He previously served as a congregational pastor in the Concord Evangelical Lutheran Church. Now the church is blessed with three Russian pastors and one talented seminary student who carry out pastoral ministry. Luke focuses on worker training and mentoring church leaders.

Luke also works with our other WELS European mission churches in Albania and Bulgaria. He also spends time with independent sister churches in Europe and provides fellowship and encouragement to help pastors and congregations who are often small and isolated.

Luke is married to Jennifer, who loves to work with music in the congregations and help get people involved with their congregations in a variety of ways. She travels with Luke to meet and strengthen friendships with the women of our sister congregations. They have three children. Christina is living in Nebraska and studying drafting and design. Katie is in her final year at Milwaukee School of Engineering and is engaged to Xander Neuwirth. Peter is a sophomore at Fox Valley Lutheran High School. He lives with Luke’s brother and family in Appleton.
