On Jan. 10, the Rev. Jonathan Petzold was installed as the new senior pastor during worship at Trinity Lutheran Church and School, 405 Rush St. in Roselle.

Pastor Petzold, a graduate of Concordia University Wisconsin in Mequon and Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, is transferring from Immanuel Lutheran Church and School in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin, and he also served as a vicar in Messiah Lutheran Church in Clio, Michigan, prior to this appointment in Roselle.


Pastor Petzold is married to Christa Petzold and they have four children, ranging in age from 8 months to age 7.

"I look forward to being an integral part of the Roselle and surrounding communities as Trinity actively helps meet local needs, provides resources for families, and shares the hope and forgiveness of Jesus with all," Rev. Petzold said. "I am particularly excited about getting to know our congregation and new faces over the next few months. Although COVID continues to challenge us, we have found ways to connect using other tools such as online conferencing and social media."

Pastor Petzold will be sharing a series of Lenten devotionals starting Feb. 24 through March 31 on Trinity's Facebook page ( and would like to invite families and individuals to check out other upcoming events and opportunities at Trinity on their website at
