Pastor Shane

Our Senior Pastor is Shane Klein. He recently retired from 23 years in the Iowa Army National Guard as a helicopter mechanic and is finishing his seminary degree through Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He also has a B.A. in Music from the University of Northern Iowa. His wife, Sara, is a graduate of UNI as well, and has been a teacher and math coach for the Waterloo Public School District since 2012.

Pastor Shane and Sara grew up in the area and have 2 sons and 2 daughters. Their younger daughter, Cora, and younger son, Sam, are in high school. Their older son, Gabe, lives and works in Omaha, NE, and their older daughter Lizzie is finishing her undergraduate degree at Iowa State University.

Pastor Shane has a deep desire to see God’s Word faithfully preached and taught, and to see God’s people sanctified in its truth. In his free time, you can usually find him reading theology or philosophy, still trying to master the guitar, or just enjoying the company of friends and family in thoughtful conversation.
