I'm Pastor Andrea. I'm excited to join the ministry at First St. Paul's Lutheran Church. I can't wait to be a part of what God is doing!
For the past 8 years, I served as Director of Sr. High Ministry at Atonement Lutheran Church in Fargo, ND. At Atonement, I got to teach youth and young adults about Jesus, lead missions and have a lot of fun. It is awesome to see all God has done and continues to do in the lives of so many young people.
In May, 2016 I graduated from Bethel Seminary, St. Paul, MN with my Master of Divinity. While I enjoyed seminary for the most part (languages and I don't see eye to eye) nothing about how I do ministry changed: it's still about pointing to Jesus.
I'm married to Jeff and we have four kids. Our general policy is the door is always open, the texts are almost always answered and if you need to, always "make the call."
