Our Pastor

Welcome to Good Shepherd Lutheran School! I am honored to be the pastor to this wonderful school, and I am also a school parent. Our daughter has been attending GSLS since she was 2 years old in the Ladybug class. Long before I became the pastor to the church and school. GSLS has been a central part to my family life.

I love and value the academic standards, community unity, parental connectedness, and extracurricular activities. I have witnessed many students and families enter our school and immediately find a community and thrive.

I am ordained as a Presbyterian minister now serving a Lutheran church and I am sure a joke is out there somewhere, I just can’t think of one off the top of my head. I have pastored churches in Marin, Washington D.C., Oakland and Ukiah.

My wife, daughter, two dogs, one cat and one fish happily call Novato our home. 

We are raising our children in a fast paced and rapidly changing world, one of my favorite quotes, and I am reminded of this on a daily basis is, “We Cannot Direct the Wind, But We Can Adjust Our Sails.”

Thank you for taking your time to learn more about Good Shepherd Lutheran School.

Joy and Peace,

Pastor Daniel Christian
