Where did you grow up? How did where you grew up contribute to preparing you for life in small-town pastoral ministry?
I grew up on a farm outside of Grand Forks, ND, so I grew up in a rural context. I was in a 4-H club for nine years, participated in rural county fairs, and went to a one-room school through eighth grade. I went to a rural church about two miles from our farm.
