Pastor Ron Siemers was born in Massillon, Ohio. He is the second of six children. His parents are Ron & Dorothy Siemers. His father was a salesman for the bowling division of AMF so his family moved often; living in several places in Minnesota before finally settling in Des Moines, IA. That is where Pastor Siemers grew up and calls home and where he became a loyal fan of the Iowa Hawkeyes and Minnesota Vikings; his two favorite teams.
Pastor went through his ministerial training at Martin Luther Academy in New Ulm, Martin Luther Prep School in Prairie du Chien, Northwestern College in Watertown, WI, and Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI. He graduated from the Seminary in 1988. Before accepting the call to Immanuel, he served five congregations in Minnesota: Trinity and Beautiful Savior in Austin, Immanuel and Zion in Hutchinson, and Trinity in Nicollet.
