Pastor Andrew Franzo was born and raised in Emmaus, PA as the youngest child of Rob and Mary Franzo. A few weeks after his birth, Pastor Franzo was baptized by his grandfather, Pastor Orville Maasch, at Peace Lutheran Church in King of Prussia, PA. On May 21, 2000, he confessed his faith and was confirmed by Pastor Roger Huffman. His confirmation verse is Proverbs 3:5. He has an older brother and older sister who are both married with two children each. In the fall of 2000 he started at Michigan Lutheran Seminary and graduated in 2004. From there he went on to Martin Luther College and graduated in 2008. After this he took a break from school altogether starting in the spring of 2009 and moved to Traverse City, MI where he camped for a summer on his family’s property before moving to Traverse City proper in the fall to live for the next three years. In the fall of 2012 Pastor Franzo started at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary. For years from after his second year of college to his vicar year at the seminary he worked at Target, mainly in the backroom. In 2014/15 he served his vicar year in South Windsor, CT where he met his future wife Ashley. Ashley was raised in CT where she attended the University of Hartford, graduating in 2011 with a BS in Early Childhood Education. Andrew and Ashley were married by Pastor Huffman on June 18, 2016. For relaxation Pastor Franzo is more of an indoor person enjoying a good book or video game, while Ashley is more outdoorsy and enjoys running, skiing, and figure skating. They both look forward to discovering the Wausau area and learning more about the new family, Redeemer Lutheran Church, that God has made them a part of.
