  • Vicar René Mehlberg

    Student Pastor

    René is a life-long Wisconsin Badger growing up on a small dairy farm in Caroline, in northeast Wisconsin. She grew up in the local Lutheran church, being very involved teaching and working as their janitor while in high school. Her current church home is Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Neenah.


    While in college at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, she was active at University Lutheran Church where the pastor encouraged her to attend seminary. It wasn’t the time, so she ventured into the world of education. The seed the pastor planted took about 18 years to germinate. After some deep soul-searching and a visit to Luther Seminary, she answered God’s call to ministry by leaving her career and moving to Minnesota to become a full-time student.


    René’s ministry experience has ranged from small town to urban, to farming to multi-cultural. She has a passion for social justice ministry and sharing God’s love with all. She is excited to return to Wisconsin and is looking forward to the next year at All Peoples as she continues to experience and listen to where God is leading her as she becomes an ordained minister.
