Meet Tree of Life's Staff

Mrs. Lori Dundore, Teacher

My Name is Lori Dundore. I am married to my husband Craig and we have three beautiful children. My first child and only son is named Trevor, next is my daughter Alyssa and Kailyn is my youngest child. I graduated from SIUC with a degree in Early Childhood. This means I am able to teach children from infant to third grade. I taught for a few years after I finished school, mostly Kindergarten and then when I had my son took a break from work to be a full-time homemaker. When my youngest daughter was 3, I got the calling to teach at Tree of Life Lutheran Preschool and took the job. I really love working with young children and find that 3 year and 4 year olds are my favorite age to work with!

Pastor Bauer's assignment out of the Seminary was to serve the dual parish of Good Shepherd in Holmen, Wisconsin, and Bethel in Galesville. Pastor Bauer married Rachel Mickelson in June of 1990. Their marriage has been blessed with three children, Lydia, Audrey and Jeremiah. In 1995, Pastor Bauer accepted the call to New Life Lutheran Church in Buffalo Grove. He's been the pastor of New Life ever since. During his time of service, New Life moved from Buffalo Grove to Lake Zurich. The congregation purchased and renovated an abandoned Baptist church building in Lake Zurich, began a preschool and completed an addition doubling the size of the original building.

While at New Life, Pastor Bauer also worked to establish Training Camp, a Lutheran Camp for kids. He's also the author of A Lutheran Looks at Mega Churches, a booklet published by Northwestern Publishing House in 2013.
