Welcome!

Paul Gauche is the Pastor of Life Transitions at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Burnsville, Minnesota where he works and plays with people of all ages helping to navigate change and understand transition while exploring the intriguing movement of the spirit in daily life.

Paul says, “Heading into the next decade of my life, I’m seeking to further redefine, reinvent, and reinvigorate myself professionally—as a pastor, and personally—as a husband, father, grandfather and friend. I want to continue to explore how the “rhythms” that are “humming” in my life will help shape me into the best iteration of myself as a creative, relational, spirited, active, mindful and grateful person.”

In addition to tending to three blogs and a series of podcasts, Paul’s writings include contributions to three published works for Group Publishing in Loveland, Colorado, including God Is Near: 30 Extraordinary Encounters; Christ In Me: 30 Next-Level Encounters; and Go Deeper Retreats: 12 Life-Changing Weekends for Youth Ministry. Since 1995, Paul has been a primary author/contributor for a multitude of faith development resources published through Changing Church Forum at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Burnsville, MN. Paul has also written for Minnesota Bride Magazine, featuring a piece entitled “To Have And To Hold”, an article written to help couples put their love story into words by writing their own wedding vows. (Spring/Summer 2009, p. 148-150).

Paul’s most recent publication is The Dance of Marriage: Keeping In Step Through The Last Song. This new book emerges from three decades of working with hundreds of couples planning wedding ceremonies that reflect commitments to build strong marriages.

The Dance launches on June 1, 2017 and can be ordered from either Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

Paul is still on his honeymoon, married to Nancy Lee Gauche and are celebrating 35 years of wedded bliss together in July 2017. Paul and Nancy Lee are grateful for their two grown children; their son, Soren, their daughter, Sarah and her husband Travis, and two beautiful granddaughters, Ruby Grace and Ryann Mae.
