Joel D. Biermann

The son of a pastor, Joel Biermann was raised in parishes in Alberta, Nebraska, and Michigan. Graduating from Concordia College, Ann Arbor in 1983, he enrolled at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis and finished his M.Div. in 1987. Married to Jeannalee Richardt in 1985, the young couple embarked on a life of service to the church by beginning at Trinity in Bemidji, Minn. A call led to a pastorate at St. Matthew, Holt, Mich. 1998 brought another move as Dr. Biermann returned to Concordia Seminary, St. Louis as a graduate student. He completed his Ph.D. in 2002 with a dissertation entitled, Virtue Ethics and the Place of Character Formation in Lutheran Theology.
