Meet Our Staff

Thomas Volker
I was born and raised in Western Minnesota in the small town of Herman. My parents still live there. My wife, Verna and I were married in 2000 and have been blessed with four children. I love being a pastor and serving my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I love the people I get to serve and work with at the church. I love being able to remind people of the presence of God in their lives at their most fragile times and, if the Holy Spirit permits being a positive witness of Christ's love in and for the people of this world. I love holding on to the promises of God.
I admit it isn't always easy to do. Life has a way of distracting me. But in the end, I get my energy from words like this: "For I know the plans I have for you," declared the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
