Pastor Stephen E. Schilke was born and raised in Rochester, MI.  He graduated from Rochester High School in 1964 and from Central Michigan University in 1969 with a B.S. degree in Mathematics.  In 1976 he received a M.S. degree in Athletic Administration from CMU.  Steve taught mathematics and coached football and basketball in the Tri-City area of Michigan for many years most of the time in Birch Run.
In the mid 90’s, he left public education to prepare for the pastoral ministry at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  After completing his pastoral education in 1997, he was placed at Christ Our Shepherd in Newport, Michigan and then in 2000 he accepted a call to Holy Cross in Onaway, Michigan.   He retired from full time pastoral ministry in November, 2008 and moved to the Bay City area.    Pastor Schilke began his intentional interim training in 2007 and has completed a six month program by the National Association of Lutheran Interim Pastors (NALIP) called “Basic Education for Intentional Interim Ministry”.  He has served in three prior intentional interim positions, Redeemer Lutheran, Saginaw, St. John Lutheran, Rochester, and  Trinity Lutheran, Port Huron.   

While attending CMU, Pastor Schilke met and married Sharon Krupa and they have two adult children. Mark, his wife Raechel, and their two sons Jacob and Joseph live in Flushing, Michigan.  Dawn and her four children, Jared, Allison, Tyler and Elizabeth, live in Freeland, Michigan.
