Meet Our Pastor
David Boettcher

I am thankful for the privilege of serving God's people at Mighty Fortress.
I grew up in New Jersey, then trained for the ministry at Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minnesota, and Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, Wisconsin. I met my wife Sarah in college, where she was trained as a Lutheran Elementary School teacher. We were married in 2003, and have been blessed with four children.
I trained as a vicar for one year in Benton Harbor, Michigan, and served for six years in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. I began serving at Mighty Fortress with Pastor Cortright in September 2011 and have been enjoying getting to know the people and the community of Red Deer. Since fall 2014, when Pastor Cortright left us to start a new church in Vancouver, I have been serving Mighty Fortress solo. I would be glad for the chance to meet you and serve you with the hope we have in Jesus!
