George Nelson, Director of Music


George Nelson was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, graduating from Milwaukee Lutheran High in 1966. After studying at Concordia Wisconsin and Concordia Nebraska, he graduated and we called to Our Savior Lutheran Church in Windom, MN in 1971. George has served a number of parishes in Minnesota, Missouri, and Kansas for the last 45+ years.

George retired from DCE ministry in 2013, coming to Chapel in 2016 to serve as Director of Music, alongside his son, DCE Andrew Nelson.

George married Jeannie in 1980 and they have two sons: Michael who is a Lutheran High School teacher in Carson City, NV and Andrew who serves here at Chapel as DCE. They currently live in St. Charles.

Unlike the rest of the staff, George does NOT run for anything. He enjoys substitute teaching at Lutheran High and is an avid Green Bay Packer fan in his spare time. Jeannie takes care of our granddaughters, Adley and Noelle.
