After graduating from the University of Minnesota's Institute of Technology with my Masters degree, I worked in industry for seven years before going to Luther Seminary in 1978. Somewhat of an unexpected career turn. I still love mathematics and physic and miss the engineering environment. However Systematic Theology and parish ministry have proven to be equally as fulfilling. My wife Victoria and I plan to return to the Twin Cities in a year os so where i hope to do interim ministry and work with congregations that are in transition. Our daughters are currently in the Twin Cities.

Looking forward to the reunion. The Committee has done an awesome job!

Hi Deb . . . Do you remember me? We talked at our last reunion. I just discovered that you are related to a colleague of mine: Irv Arnquist. I have been serving a parish in International Falls for 10 years now. He was in the other ELCA church in town until he retired last May. Take care! See you on the 22nd. Steve

Hi Bonne . . . I am an ELCA pastor in the NE MN Synod which has its office in Duluth. There are times I have meetings in Duluth and some of the congregations north. Small world! I remember your smile and how pleasant you were. I also remember your Mom . .. She was so helpful during those early struggles with vocation. I have been Int'l Falls for ten years....Love it here.
