I grew up in a Christian home here in Minnesota. I attended Bethel College and Seminary in St. Paul and met my husband, Joel when we were both students at the Seminary. After we were married, we planted churches in Montana, Nebraska and Minnesota.
We began attending First Baptist in 1992 after my husband transitioned out of the ministry.
Teaching God’s word is my passion and I was blessed to teach in the Bible department at Bethel University for 12 years before joining the staff of First Baptist as the pastor to senior adults, serving some of the most amazing people in the world.
Joel and I live on a hobby farm outside of Cambridge and have two grown children and three grandchildren.
