Pastor Jon Zabell

Pastor Jon Zabell's ministry began in Omaha, Nebraska, and he's been serving at St. Paul in Green Bay since 2006.  He serves our national church body as chair of the Commission on Worship. He also chairs the executive committee for the WELS hymnal project and is a presenter for Schools of Worship Enrichment.

His wife Julie teaches four-year-old kindergarten at St. Paul School. Their three teen-aged boys can finish a pizza in under a minute, but their youngest, a girl, always manages to snag a piece or two for herself. Jon enjoys spending time with his family, swimming, playing piano, and reading.
