Pastor Brandy Gerjets, Lead Pastor

Pastor Brandy Gerjets moved back to her hometown of Minot with her husband Travis in 2014, where she has since served as the Associate Pastor of First Lutheran Church. She graduated from Valparaiso University in 2004 and Luther Seminary in 2008 before traveling abroad on a one-year fellowship to experience different expressions of the church in faraway places. She has served congregations in Marshall and Waconia, MN. When not fulfilling pastoral duties, she enjoys reading, decorating cakes, and taking pictures of her two adorable sons, Everett and Barrett.
