We’re pleased to announce that Pastor Daniel Burfiend has joined our school board (and another board announcement to come soon). Rev. Burfiend is the husband of Roseli, father of three sons and an unborn baby due in about a month, and pastor of New Hope Lutheran Church in Ossian, Indiana.
He and Rosi are graduates of Hillsdale College, one of the country’s leading liberal arts institutions and a national pioneer in establishing and advising K-12 classical schools and developing classically oriented teachers. At Hillsdale, where he majored in history, Burfiend won a campuswide speech competition for three of his four undergraduate years and was on the college debate team. Burfiend worked for the college after graduation in institutional advancement before heading to Concordia Theological Seminary here in Fort Wayne for both his pastoral graduate degree and an academic graduate degree in theology. Burfiend also advises the board of Wittenburg Academy, an online classical school.
Here’s a picture of three-quarters of Dan’s family. Please join us in welcoming the Burfiends to helm Redeemer Classical School!
