Thank you for visiting our website! I’m Pastor Allison Siburg and I feel so blessed to be the pastor here at Salem Lutheran Church in Fontanelle. This past November I was ordained in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and then installed at Salem in early December. I’m from Washington state, so this call is a new adventure for me in more ways than one! In 2009, I graduated from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington with a major in religion and minor in women’s and gender studies. I received my Master of Arts degree in Systematic Theology from Luther Seminary in 2012, and then again my Master of Divinity degree with the same concentration in 2016.
My husband, Timothy, and I started our married lives in Minnesota as students at Luther, and after my year of internship in Vancouver, Washington, we received calls to be rostered leaders in the Nebraska synod. As a consecrated deacon, Timothy is the synod’s new Director for Stewardship.
I am excited to begin my ordained ministry at Salem, and join you in this new chapter of faith together! Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, dreams, ideas, or ideas for coffee!
God’s blessings and peace,
Pastor Allison Siburg
