Pastor Bill Rindy

Senior Pastor

Pastor Bill came to serve at Good Shepherd in September of 2021. Ordained in 1992, he spent most of his ministry in eastern North Dakota, serving in Lisbon, Fargo, and the Synod office as Bishop. Most recently, he and his wife, Louise, served for nearly seven years at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Mesa and Gold Canyon, AZ. Watching the scriptures come to life in the eyes of worshippers and those in Bible/book studies bring some of his greatest satisfaction in ministry. “The Word still becomes flesh in the lives of people as they live out their God-given callings. Helping them to discover and live out those callings is deeply rewarding.”

Married for nearly 35 years, they are parents of two grown daughters (and their husbands), they have added the roles of “Papa” and “Grandma” to their resumes twice. Pastor Bill enjoys fixing things… all kinds of things. When given the choice, he can be found playing with the “grands”, golfing, doing projects, or trying to be a Vikings/Colts/Twins fan.
