Born in nurnberg, he studied in erlangen and munster after graduating from high school and was awarded his bachelor's degree on 1 january 2008. Ordained in ostheim/middle franconia in november 1985, was vicar in the old town of furth, pastor in ostheim and degernheim, last preached in weidenberg for 15 years. The 56-year-old, married and father of two grown-up children: "after 30 years in the ministry, i wanted to take on a new challenge for the last decade. I applied for the position in neudrossenfeld, was accepted and am looking forward to the time ahead of me".
He says that his work on the edge of the fichtelgebirge has made him half upper franconian by now, he says with a smile on his face. He gets along well with the mentality in the north of bavaria "if you open your heart, the hearts of the people also open".
Jogging and fubball
He already got to know the beautiful area in the rotmain valley when driving through the villages, and has already taken the limmersdorfer forest to heart. For him it is an ideal jogger's paradise, where he can really indulge in his hobby. In addition, he loves hiking and traveling, is often with friends in the south of france in the provence, there one could relax with a glass of red well.
Soccer is also part of it "just three years ago, i strengthened the old men's team of weidenberg". After all, the game with the round leather was not far from my birthplace "i come from the nurnberg district of zabo, where FC nurnberg grew up is". Therefore, he could easily be called a die-hard club fan. Earlier, he had participated in point games in central franconia, for a pastor rather unusual.
