Pastoral staff

The word "pastor" means "shepherd."  That's what pastors are there to do.  We all need people who will care for us, pray for us, and lead us back to the promises and guidance that God gives us in his Word.

Pastor Guse entered the ministry in 1972, after completing eight years of study at Northwestern College (Watertown, Wisconsin) and Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary (Mequon, Wisconsin). Upon graduation, he was assigned to do mission work in South Carolina, and for the first ten years of his ministry, helped start a number of congregations. In 1983, he was called to begin a congregation in the north Atlanta area. That congregation is Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church, where he still serves today in a part-time capacity.
