Our staff
Pastor Tom Klusmeyer, vacancy pastor

Pastor Tom graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in 1980 and was assigned to a congregation in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  One of his greatest joys at that congregation was working with young people.

In 1983 he received and accepted a call to serve as the first Camp Director/Camp Pastor at Camp Phillip outside of Wautoma, Wisconsin.  Camp Phillip provides relaxation in creation and renewal in Christ for WELS youth, adults, families, churches and schools throughout the year.  Over the years Tom has done everything at camp including preaching, sing-alongs, programming, administration, food service, fundraising, maintenance, construction, chainsawing and grass cutting; he's built websites, designed online registrations, written curriculum, created training manuals, operated backhoes, filled out hundreds of government/insurance forms, paid thousands of bills and washed millions of dishes. 

Tom retired from Camp Phillip in 2020 and became involved at Peace Lutheran in Wautoma as Elders chairman, Church council member, Outreach committee member, webmaster and now vacancy pastor.

Tom is married to Nancy who is a Registered Nurse.  At Camp Phillip Nancy became a full-time volunteer making meals in the kitchen, cleaning buildings, washing mattress pads at the laundromat at midnight, doing health care and even counseling in cabins at night.  Tom and Nancy have two children, Nathan and Hannah.  Nathan is in his last year at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminay studying to be a pastor.  After two years in China with Friends of China, Hannah came back to Wautoma and is now the Director of the Wautoma Public Library. 

Christine Bohn, Administrative assistant

My family have been members of Peace since 2001.  I began teaching Sunday School in 2002 and that is still one of the greatest joys in my life!  My husband and I started a Lutheran Boy and Girl Pioneers ministry here at Peace in 2005.

I became secretary here in November of 2007, after being a stay-at-home mom for almost seven years to our wonderful girls, Rebecca and Emily.  Being part of the great things that are happening at Peace and continuing to have our faith strengthened each and every day we are here is such a blessing!

I also am the Executive Director of the national Lutheran Girl Pioneers organization, leading this vital WELS/ELS ministry of over 1100 girls all over the USA and Canada!

My husband of 22 years, Kevin, was born and raised in Wautoma.   He is employed as a custodian at the local middle school and also works part time at Camp Phillip, our local WELS camp.  I lived in the Plainfield/Hancock area until I got married and made Wautoma my home.

I hope you will join us for worship soon!  We'd love for you to be part of our church family, too!
