Cullman, Ala. – Pastor Richard Gaub has accepted the call to become associate pastor and headmaster of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and School. Pastor Gaub will be installed on Sunday, July 3, at 3:00 p.m. with a reception to follow. All are welcome to join us for this blessed occasion and to have the opportunity to meet him.

Pastor Gaub has served churches and schools in Wyoming, Virginia, California and Texas. He is coming to St. Paul’s with more than 20 years of experience in administration and teaching. Pastor Gaub is a man who is patient and loving, and he is loved by his students. His background with Classical Lutheran education will be paramount for future growth of St. Paul’s.

The first Lutheran schools were formed for the precise purpose of offering a classical education. Martin Luther and the early reformers urged the local governments to set up schools patterned after the ancient academies of the Greeks and Romans teaching the seven liberal arts of grammar, dialectic (logic), rhetoric, aesthetics (music), empirics (astronomy), mathematics and geometry. These schools became the model for public schools that set the standard for excellence in education well into the 20th century.

Pastor Gaub is not coming to us alone. His wife, Kristine, is a teacher and has taught for more than four decades. Mrs. Gaub will teach first grade beginning in August. The Gaubs are very zealous for the Lord and His work at St. Paul’s and they look forward to the strengthening of our school for the benefit of the students and the Cullman community.

Pastor and Mrs. Gaub have four children and five grandchildren.
