Prior to high school he moved with his family to the Pacific Northwest where he graduated from Walla Walla University with majors in theology, biblical languages and business administration and a minor in music.
After graduating with his Master of Divinity from the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University, he pastored in the Upper Columbia Conference. He has also served as a pastor, treasurer and church administrator in the Nevada-Utah and Montana Conferences.
During college Iseminger spent a year at Newbold College in England and as a student missionary in Jerusalem, Israel. As a result he developed a lifelong love for mission.
