We are a family of 6 living in White Bear Lake, MN. Jude is 11, Jonah is 9, Clive is 7 and Reeve is 4. Melonie and I have been married for 14 years and we tirelessly root for the Vikings as part of our ongoing sanctification. I (Gabe) pastored a church in Balsam Lake, WI for 8 years. We recently moved back to our home state and are excited to begin a church planting residency in Woodbury, MN!
We believe that church planting is a fruitful and effective way to spread the message of Jesus, galvanize believers to be on mission and shine light in forgotten places of the world. Life can be messy and hard. We know! The church gives people a good dose of real hope.
During the residency, I will be writing core documents for our church plant, developing a vision and mission statement, fund-raising and forming a launch team to join us in starting this new church (among allot of other things!). We are immensely excited for this opportunity and believe that the harvest is plentiful.
