He served his vicarship (pastoral apprenticeship) from 2007-2008 at St. Paul in Amherst, New Hampshire, under Rev. Joel Petermann. Upon his seminary graduation, he was assigned to be a dormitory supervisor for one year at Nebraska Evangelical Lutheran High School in Waco, where he was ordained into the pastoral ministry and where he also served as a religion and algebra instructor and assistant basketball coach. In 2010, he was reassigned as the pastor of Grace and St. Paul Lutheran Churches northwest of Wausau, Wisconsin, where he also taught religion part-time at Northland Lutheran High School. In January 2017, he accepted the call to serve here at Risen Savior Evangelical Lutheran Church, where he was installed on February 26.

Pastor Biebert also enjoys hiking, fly fishing, and historical research, including translating German and Latin works. They have a six-year-old Golden Retriever named Gerhardt.

A note from Pastor Biebert:

Rather than telling you more about myself, I would much rather meet and get to know you. If you’re an Austin-area resident looking for a church or are a visitor to the area, please pay us a visit at Risen Savior. The truth of God’s Word is not drab, hum-drum, boring, too complicated, or too confusing. It is, at its heart, exciting, joyful, heartwarming, clear, and extremely practical. I think you’ll also find that to be the case for yourself if you pay us a visit. I would love to have your life’s story cross paths with mine, and to share with you how your life’s story has already crossed paths with God’s.
