Blessings from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I am Pastor Evan Veen. I have been called by the Lord to serve as Pastor at Holy Redeemer Lutheran Church here in Dryden, MI.
I was born in South Bend, IN and raised in Elkhart, IN.
I went to Trinity Lutheran Church and School. I went through preschool through 8th grade in the Lutheran School System. I then went to Elkhart Memorial High School and graduated there in 2013. From there, I went to Concordia University Wisconsin with a Major in Pre-Seminary Studies and a minor in theological languages. I graduated from CUW in 2017. I went to Concordia Seminary in St. Louis to earn my Master of Divinity. During seminary, I did field work church at St. Lucas Evangelical Lutheran Church in St. Louis. I served my vicarage at Trinity Lutheran Church in Howards Grove, WI. I graduated from Seminary in May 2021. I was ordained at my church of Trinity Lutheran Church in Elkhart, IN on June 13th, 2021. I was then installed as pastor here at Holy Redeemer on July 11th, 2021.
I was born to my father and mother, Paul and Becky Veen. My dad has worked in restaurants his whole life. My mom is a Lutheran School Teacher. I have 2 brothers, and 1 sister-in-law. Calvin is my older brother who studied engineering. Tori is Calvin’s wife, who is studying law. Ian is my younger brother who is studying accounting.
As I begin my ministry here at Holy Redeemer, I pray that the Lord blesses my time here. That through me, the Lord can help His church grow in faith and love.

God’s Blessings,
Pastor Veen
