In 1998, Pastor Matt Zimpelmann graduated from Martin Luther College (New Ulm, MN) with a B.A. Four years later he earned his Masters of Divinity from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, including a year of internship at Messiah Lutheran Church in Wichita, KS. After serving as the pastor of two churches in central Nebraska for seven years, Matt accepted a Call to Cross of Christ, Boise.
He and his wife Gina brought their two children, Michael and Lily, to Boise in the spring of 2009. In December of 2014, the Lord added a beautiful little girl, Emma, to their family.
In her free time, Gina loves to cook, exercise and spend time with her family. Pastor Z enjoys reading and pretty much every sport you can name – both watching and competing.
The Zimpelmanns are so thankful that God, in his infinite wisdom, brought them to Idaho and are thrilled with all of the opportunities here to grow closer to Jesus together with God’s precious people at Cross of Christ.
