Ryan Wolfe Pastor • (651) 439-7831

Pastor Wolfe is excited to be a part of the ministry team at Salem to share the gospel in the Stillwater area. Pastor Wolfe grew up across the river near Eau Claire, WI and returns to the area after 11 years preaching in North Dakota and 6 in northern Wisconsin. Pastor loves ministry of all different kinds, but especially enjoys teaching adults and sharing the basics of faith with new members and nonmembers. Pastor enjoys music of almost every variety (singing, playing piano, trumpet, handbells, and starting guitar) and listens to everything from country to classical. Pastor and his high school sweetheart Jessie have been married since 2000, and have four children in grade school, high school, and college. His hobbies revolve around the family these days, but in his spare time he enjoys science and science fiction, and is eager to renew some woodworking and outdoor hobbies. To God be the glory!

Jake Schram Pastor • (651) 439-7831

Pastor Jake was ordained and installed at Salem in August 2017. He is from Merrill, Wisconsin and attended Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minnesota and then Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon. He spent his Vicar year in Columbus, Ohio. He is calm, hard-working, and a part of him will always be a kid at heart. His hobbies include card-collecting, reading, sports, watching movies, trying and learning new things, and and of course, sharing God’s Word.
