The Rev. Dr. Paul Maier, son of the iconic Lutheran radio preacher and Seminary professor, Walter A. Maier, has, in many ways, eclipsed his own father's success. Not that it was his intention! His tenure at Western Michigan University will probably never be matched. His esteem in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod extends to nearly all quarters of the Pastors and people of this church body that has elected him to the presidium for many years. His skill as a teacher is legendary and has been known well here at Grace where has has taught and preached 5 times over the last ten years. Most of all, he is such an engaging and warm personality whose genuine love for the Church, whose vast knowledge of history and archeology, and whose skill at communicating what he knows have and continue to be one of our church's crown jewels. He has retired from WMU where he has taught since the 1960-1961 school year.
