Our Pastor

St. John’s would like to welcome Pastor Brian Staude!!

A brief bio from Pastor Brian….

I was born in Detroit Michigan to the parents of Rev. Don Staude and Bev Michaud and in 1969 my family moved to Green Bay where I spent my growing up years (and yes I am a die-hard Packer fan and season ticket holder).   In 1981 I graduated from Preble High School and then went on to Wartburg College where I graduated in 1985 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Social Work.  It was then that I went on to Wartburg Theological Seminary graduating in 1989.    

 In 1988 I married the love of my life Barbara (Redine) Staude.  We have two children Matthew (26) and Jacob (24) and two granddaughters Marcella (2) and Mira (1).

I have served the congregations of Christ Lutheran in Oshkosh, Good Shepherd in Wausau, St. Paul in Manitowoc and most recently Bethel Lutheran in Green Bay.

What are some things that I love to do?  I enjoy spending time with my family, sports and trying new restaurants as well as many other things……..

And lastly, let me say that I look forward to getting to know the people of St. John.

Elissa Ribbens – Accompanist

Elissa Ribbens - accompanist

Elissa lives in De Pere and is a junior at Saint Norbert College, studying as a piano performance major. In addition to church liturgy, she accompanies various concerts, musicals, weddings, and other events in the Green Bay area, as well as singing with the SNC chamber choir and WAMI award-winning trio Tre Principesse. She most recently served as associate music director, rehearsal accompanist, and pit keyboard in Saint Norbert Music Theater’s summer production of Mary Poppins. After undergrad, Elissa will immediately begin studying at an undecided graduate school for a master’s degree in either Piano Performance or Piano Pedagogy/Accompaniment. This will most likely lead to a freelance career in various accompaniment positions, hopefully including touring with musical productions as a pit orchestra member. She plans on starting a private piano studio soon. Elissa is looking forward to new experiences this year such as starting organ lessons, competing in a concerto competition, preparing for her junior recital, and playing for St. John’s!
