Pastor Dean and Marijo Bjorlin

Lead Pastor.

Hi I’m Dean. Inside of this 65 year old body is the heart of a young man. It’s just that I keep it well hidden. I moved to the Valley ( I didn’t know you could call flat plains a valley) about 11 years ago from the beautiful shores of Lake Superior. I know you’re questioning my ability to hear from God now, at least my wife was! I’m an incurable Twins and Vikings fan, love to read espionage and books that challenge my faith. I used to think I was an athlete. I play basketball, run, jog, OK fast walk, 2 miles a day and am still in love with my incredible wife Marijo(she moved here with me didn’t she?) . Kids? We have four-one in their 20’s, three in their 30's,two son-in-laws, and the five cutest grand-daughters in the world, all who we are very proud of. I am privileged to love what I do and the people I serve.
