Pastor Aaron Platzer
I was born and raised in the small town of Olivet, MI (just south of Lansing, MI). I am the oldest in my family with three younger siblings who are all adopted from different countries (South Korea, China, and the Philippines). And now, I have a family of my own. I am married to my wonderful wife, Emily. And we have two daughters, Evelyn and Mabel. God has certainly blessed me with a great family!
After graduating from Olivet High School, I went off to New Ulm, MN to attend Martin Luther College to begin my studies and training to become a pastor. From there, I went on to Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI to finish my studies and training. It was after graduating from the Seminary in 2019 that I was assigned to serve the members of Peace Lutheran Church and the people in and around Loves Park, IL.
I love being outside, playing with my two young daughters, watching and playing different sports, and coffee… I really love coffee. I’ll admit it, I’m a bit of a coffee snob. From roasting to tasting and everything in between, I thoroughly enjoy coffee. 
Well, that’s plenty about me. Now, I want to learn about you. Feel free to reach out anytime to chat. I enjoy the opportunity to get to talk with people! (Maybe we can meet over coffee!!) But far above the joy I have of visiting with people or enjoying coffee with someone, is the chance to be able to talk about the most important person in the world: Jesus, my Savior and your Savior. Hope to talk with you soon!
