Who We Are
Founded: August 15, 1896
Mission: To bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people
Denomination: Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
Pastor: Rev. Jeff Brown, OLF
It is a joy and privilege to be called as your pastor. I am confident God has called us in this time and in this place to do God's work with our hands. The Church is not a building - it's the people. YOU are the Church. WE are the Church. As we begin this new adventure, let's confidently follow the Spirit, united in God's love and grace, to "bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people."
Pastor Jeff Brown, OLF is a life-professed brother of the Order of Lutheran Franciscans, the first religious order of the ELCA. He is a graduate of Luther Seminary (St. Paul) and Concordia College (Moorhead). Pr. Jeff is currently training to be a certified spiritual director with Christos Spiritual Formation. He has four "children" - two girls (Nora & Alice) and two pets (Luna & Macey). Pr. Jeff tries to live the phrase attributed to St. Francis of Assisi: "Preach the Gospel at all times; if necessary, use words."
