Richard Paschke

I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin and attended the Lutheran church there. My first introduction to the Gospel was during my confirmation, which resulted in accepting Christ as my savior; I was 12 years old. There were setbacks in my spiritual growth, but God continued to place other Christians in my life. I joined the Air Force, continued my education on the GI bill and received a bachelor’s in physics and a master’s in Industrial Engineering. Noel and I were married in 1997 and attended Grace Fellowship church, where I became involved in the men’s group. This was a milestone in my faith. We moved to Missoula in 2012 and were led to CATG, where I led small groups and helped setup marriage mentoring program at the church.
