It truly is a blessing to be the pastor of Calvary. I am very excited to be in such a beautiful area of Minnesota. It is always a joy for me to get to share with others the love of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
I grew up in a small town in Nebraska where my father serves as a minister. I graduated from Martin Luther College (New Ulm, MN) in 2011, and from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary (Mequon, WI) in 2015. In my third year during Seminary I interned at St. Paul's in Beverly Hills, FL.
I have been blessed with a wonderful wife, Olivia. We have a five-year-old daughter and a four-year-old son. The children are energetic, happy, and bring smiles and joy to us every day!
I look forward to meeting and getting to know you. I think you will find our church has a lot to offer. You will find a church family that is caring and welcoming. You will find a church that desires to hold onto Biblical teachings and to make these teachings relevant for everyday living. You will find people from all walks of life who have come to worship their Savior. We hope to see you soon!
Lord's blessings to you,
Pastor Mark Kahrs
