Associate Pastor: Tyler Stynsberg
I grew up in Roseau, Minnesota. Through a loving local church family (First Baptist Church of Roseau) I experienced much discipleship from intentional, caring adults who desired to see young people passionately pursuing Christ and maturing in relationship with Him. I knew I wanted to provide that kind of intentional mentorship in the life of students one day myself. While in high school, I felt called into ministry and pursued a B.A. degree in Youth Leadership with a minor in Biblical and Theological studies from Providence College in Otterburne, Manitoba.
God provided many opportunities to share the gospel of Jesus Christ in various youth ministry environments—small town, urban, camp, college, church, and parachurch—before bringing me to New Journey Church in the Fall of 2010.
On September 5th, 2015, Emily became my wife and my partner in ministry.
Emily graduated from Oak Hills Christian College of Bemidji in Dec. 2013, with a double major in Youth Ministry and Biblical and Theological Studies.
Together, we enjoy cooking, reading, camping, biking, drawing, and crafting. Emily enjoys Brussel sprouts, and I do not.
