College Ministry Staff

Our staff is involved with every ministry of the St. Olaf College Student Congregation. In addition, we engage in a wide variety of pastoral conversations. From discussions regarding vocation to questions of faith to the joys and struggles of daily life, we look forward to experiencing together the fullness of St. Olaf College.
