Paul Steinberg, was born in northern Wisconsin and raised in the small township of Mukwa. His parents, Ken and Dawn, were a factory worker and nurse and raised him in God's word along with his brother, Willard. Partnering with his parents in the Christian discipleship of Paul were Emanuel Lutheran Church and school and Fox Valley Lutheran High School. Paul first desired to be a pastor in 2nd grade and chose to be trained at Northwestern College in Watertown, WI and Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI before he was assigned as a pastor to St. Paul's, Mauston and St. Luke's, New Lisbon in 1997. Pastor Steinberg has since served Immanuel Lutheran Church of Medford, WI and St. Marcus Lutheran Church of Milwaukee before being called as the executive director of Chaplains in Schools, a WELS-affiliated organization, in 2015 (now a part of A City for God). Pastor Steinberg continued his education through Liberty University and received his Doctor of Ministry degree in 2014 in Urban Ministry. Fairview Lutheran Church called Pastor Steinberg in 2022 to serve them while continuing to serve A City for God so that both organizations could accomplish more together than separately.
Pastor Steinberg's wife, Rebecca, serves as a music teacher at St. Marcus Lutheran School in Milwaukee. They have 6 adult children who all live in Milwaukee.
Unique facts: Pastor Steinberg's occupation before ministry was professional juggling and he competed in the IJA championships in Montreal while in college. He and his wife love their cute but dangerous little white Bichapoo puppy, Frosting. Rebecca's parents, Kurt and Sara, used to live with Paul and Rebecca along with Grandma Beverly, making the household members number 11. The addition Kurt and Sara built onto the house is now a handicap-accessible AirBnB.
I am a life-long Christian and a member of the Fairview Family since 1992. I served as a police officer on the Wauwatosa Police Department for 32 years, and retired in April of 2001 at the rank of Police Captain. That same month I was called by Fairview to serve as their first staff minister.
My main passion at Fairview is telling others about Jesus. I also enjoy leading Bible studies, assisting in worship services, and being part of my wonderful church family. My wife, Sharon, and I live in Brookfield, and have four grown children and fourteen grandchildren - all working, living and worshiping in Milwaukee and Waukesha County.
I would love to have an opportunity to get to introduce you to God’s grace and Jesus’ peace. Please call me (262-993-2130) or e-mail me (CaptainGN@wi.rr.com) with questions or concerns at any time!
