Pastor Steve Kline was installed as Senior Pastor at SHLC on May 25, 2014, after serving 12 years as Senior Pastor at Zion in Wayside, WI. Pastor Steve was ordained in 1992 and previously served congregations in Pulaski, WI, and Hales Corners, WI. He and his wife, Debbie, will be celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary in 2020. Debbie has a master’s degree in counseling and works for Lutheran Social Services in Appleton.
Pastor Steve met Debbie while they were both attending Concordia University Wisconsin in Mequon. Their daughter, Erin, graduated from CUW in 2018 and currently lives outside of Atlanta, GA. Their son, Andy, will graduate from CUW in 2021 and will enter Lutheran Elementary Education after graduation. Pastor teaches theology classes for the CUW centers in Appleton and Green Bay, as well as online.
Pastor Steve is the youngest of seven, born in Buffalo, NY, where many of his siblings still live. Debbie is the youngest of three girls, the others living in Denver, CO, and in Wrightstown, WI. Her father, Ron, lives in West Bend, WI, where Debbie grew up and where the Kline’s were married.
The Kline’s are huge fans of the Packers and the Brewers, and they also follow hockey with the Buffalo Sabres and the Green Bay Gamblers. Pastor Steve loves to go deer hunting each November, but for some reason rarely returns home with a deer.
