Jim Buege

I am privileged to have served more than 20 years at Lakeside, the majority of those as the director of choirs. The great joy of my ministry is taking the A Cappella Choir out to the various congregations in our federated area. Seeing the choir express their faith in song and actions is so spiritually uplifting. Coupling that with the other opportunities I have at Lakeside -- working with students in the classroom (Choir & Composition) and working shoulder to shoulder with a dedicated staff -- I consider myself truly blest.

I grew up at Garden Homes Lutheran in Milwaukee and attended Wisconsin Lutheran High School. Upon graduating from Martin Luther College, I tutored at LPS. The next year I was reassigned to Trinity in Minocqua where my wife Lorraine and I had the privilege of starting the school. After Minocqua, I served at Zion in Columbus as principal and then was called to Lakeside.

My wife Lorraine and I have three daughters (Melanie, Adrienne, and Katie), all graduates of Lakeside, and four grandkids (Joseph, Lia, Kaeden & Josiah). In my spare time, I enjoy following the Brewers, Packers, Bucks and Badgers and doing projects around the house.
