A message from Pastor Caleb Free

Welcome to Risen Savior! My name is Caleb Free and I have the privilege of serving as Risen Savior's Pastor. My wife Kristin and I have been married since 2013, and we have three wonderful children: Clay, Aaron, and JoJo. We love calling Lakewood Ranch home and are very grateful for our church and school family at Risen Savior Church and Academy.

Besides watching sports and playing golf, I have a passion for sharing the good news of Jesus with one and all. I am a firm believer that God loves all people, and that his gift of salvation is a gift he gives to you. My priority and focus as Pastor at Risen Savior is clearly sharing God's love with all who come through our doors. I hope and pray that includes you! Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have about the Bible, or our Church and School. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Hi! My name is Pastor Bob Krueger. My wife Amy and I have been married since 2017. We live in West Bradenton. It is a privilege to have joined the staff at Risen Savior as a semi-retired Pastor. It has been a blessing to share the Good News of Jesus since I graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in 1977. I look forward to sharing the Good News with you at Risen Savior. Please reach out to me with any questions you may have about the Bible or about our Church. I look forward to meeting you.

A message from Pastor Ben Balge

Hi! My name is Pastor Ben Balge. My wife, Erika, and I moved to Parrish in the summer of 2023. We have loved getting to know all that the area has to offer. You can find us discovering the best places to eat, trying out a new beach, or out for a walk with our dog, Marley.

The opportunity to start a church in Parrish is such an exciting blessing. I can’t wait to tell more people the good news about Jesus.

“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in our sin - it is by grace you have been saved." (Ephesians 2:4-5) I look forward to meeting you!
