Meet Pastor Bur
“The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:8)
Pastor Helwig is currently serving Good Shepherd as the vacancy pastor. He also serves at Gethsemane across town where he has been leading the ministries since 2008. Prior to Gethsemane he served the congregation of Gethsemane Lutheran in Lee's Summit, Missouri (2001-2008). He served on the Nebraska District Mission Board from 2002-2012 and is currently serving as the Nebraska District Vice President (2012-Present).

Pastor Helwig is married to his loving and supportive wife, Carrie. They have been blessed with six children and are now enjoying a new chapter in life as grandparents. In his free time, Pastor Helwig loves spending time with his family - playing board games and watching movies. He loves camping and fishing and he is also an avid sports fan - watching and cheering on his favorite high school, college and professional teams.
His favorite part of being in the ministry is preaching and teaching - sharing a practical and relevant message of God's Word that will not only assure God's people of His love and forgiveness but will also empower and guide them in their lives of faith.
