Pastor Wayne was appointed to Lino Lakes in July 2023 as an Interim pastor. He's been a pastor for 38+ years and lives in North Oaks, MN with his wife Holly. Pastor Wayne's joy in pastoral ministry is to see people come alive as they hear and participate in the Gospel of Jesus Christ - to see people come together in the big family, called the Family of Faith, the Church.
