Introducing Redeemer's Staff
Dan Thompson, Senior Pastor
Welcome to our brand-new Senior Pastor Dan Thompson and wife Debi. Pastor Dan grew up in the Evangelical Covenant Church and trusted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior at a young age. He has pastored several churches in the Twin Cities area, and over the last 16 years has helped 12 churches in the process of pastoral transition. He is excited at the possibilities God has for Redeemer Covenant Church in its next season of ministry. Mountain biking is a favorite hobby. Pastor Dan says he follows all Minnesota sports teams, even when they are letting us down.
