Rev. Joel Pankow
Pastor Pankow grew up in Watertown, WI, the son of the business manager of our old pastor training school at Northwestern College. He comes from a long paternal line of pastors as his uncle, grandfather, great grandfather and great great grandfather were all pastors. He graduated in 1995 from the seminary and was called to serve two congregations in western Kansas and western Nebraska; being 67 miles apart. It was there that he met his wife Bekah. She is a farmer's daughter from Norton, KS and she was a member of the congregation in Norton.

Pastor and Bekah were married in 1996 and had two children during their time in Norton; Tristan and Rylee. In fall of 2000 Pastor was called to serve Beautiful Savior in Topeka, KS. During his 12 years there he served a congregation of about 100 souls. He was also elected as Special Ministries Chairman for the Nebraska District of the WELS. Pastor and Bekah were blessed with three more children in Topeka; Logan, Maia and Landon.

Bekah went to school in Lawrence, KS to become a massage therapist. She has enjoyed volunteering at school, baking and keeping her family clothed and fed. She now works at Covenant as a massage therapist four days a week.  The children enjoy a wide variety of sports and also play several musical instruments.

The family enjoys going on bike rides together and occasionally playing board games. While driving by their house it's likely that you will see a football, basketball, or volleyball game in progress on the property.
