Pat Wester has joined the District Team as the Director of Church Revitalization, where he will provide key resources as he coaches NCD churches toward thriving. Raised in Minnesota, Pat and his wife, Dawn, now live in Rochester after a stint in Colorado.  They have three grown children and are “Papa and Nana” to three grandkids, who somehow manage to get spoiled every time they visit. Ordained in the EFCA, Pat brings 25 years of service in pastoral ministry, including youth, children’s, small groups, and executive roles to our team, as well as a desire to see congregations and church staffs flourish and find vitality.  We praise God for His orchestration in this addition to our District. Welcome, Pat!
