Our Rector (Pastor)
Josh and Bryonie have lived in Minnesota since 2008, at first surviving winters and now somehow enjoying them. They have two children with God and two growing (quickly) in their home. They have known struggle, grief, joy, and grace, and are grateful for all of it. As a family they've come to enjoy bike rides, walks, good meals and good wine. And, of course, serious television—like Parks and Rec.
Josh did his seminary studies at Covenant Seminary in St Louis, MO; and a Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible from St Andrews (Scotland). He's published a few articles as well as a book on Jeremiah's New Covenant, and a commentary on the book of Hosea.
Stewart Ruch III
Bishop Stewart and his wife, Katherine, have six children, and their first love and passion is developing their family as a “domestic church.” As bishop, Stewart has another deep-seated passion: to plant a revival of Word and Sacrament infused by the power of the Holy Spirit across the Upper Midwest.
