Welcome Pastor Tony Prinsen!

Pastor Prinsen began his work at Emmanuel Monday, January 15. He comes to us from First United Lutheran Church in Kennesaw, GA. Previously he served as an associate pastor at United Lutheran Church in Grand Forks, ND. Pastor Prinsen is a graduate of Concordia College, Moorhead State University, Wartburg Seminary, and Luther Seminary. Prior to seminary, he served as the director of youth ministries at Bethany Lutheran Church in Denver, CO.

Pastor Tony’s ministry passions are worshiping, learning, and serving with all ages as we grow and share our faith together in God’s mission of love for the world. He looks forward to getting to know the members of the congregation, learning our faith stories, and working together to invite and welcome others into the ministries of Emmanuel. Please know that he is available for conversation and coffee, so just contact him and make an appointment at (703) 938-2119 or aprinsen@elcvienna.org.

Pastor’s spouse, Marcy, and their children, Greta, Talia, and Gunnar will arrive after the sale of their house in Georgia. We eagerly anticipate welcoming them too! Our thanks to the call committee, congregational council, and the transition team for all their work in this process.
