November 10, 2020: Pastor Tim Peterson, "Going to Norway, Becoming Norwegian"

“I visited Norway the first time in 1964, when I was 8 years old, visiting relatives in Valdres and Oslo with my parents. I have gone back to Norway as a military chaplain, a software designer, and as a pastor - 13 times altogether. And, of course, I have had the wonderful privilege of serving as interim pastor at Mindekirken in Minneapolis! Here I will share the story of all my Norwegian adventures.”

Tim Peterson, interim pastor at Mindekirken from September 2017 through December 2018 and interim pastor of the American Lutheran Congregation in Oslo from September 2019 through April 2020, is now the Executive Director of Mount Carmel, a Bible Camp near Alexandria, Minnesota.


Mindekirken is called to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all people, empowering service to others.
Mindekirken practices its ministry through Norwegian traditions, culture, and language.
