I have been the Lead Pastor at Vinje since 2016.
I am originally from Waseca Minnesota and a graduate of Augustana University in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Lutheran Seminary in Saint Paul.
I enjoy working with the congregation’s many ministries including our Confirmation and youth ministries. I live with my wife, Seyward and our daughters Brooklyn and Magnolia - who are usually busy chasing our cats around the house.
My passion for social justice has led me to found Serve Boldly and to my work on the board of directors for Lutheran Volunteer Corps.
