Our first Dean, Pastor Tim Lundeen, was appointed by Bp. Paull Spring and then elected to serve two full three year terms, which has now ended. After a spirited election, the Rev. Lyle Belleque, Peace Lutheran Church, Devils Lake, ND, was elected Dean of the Minkota Mission District.
Pastor Lundeen said, “I have been humbled and blessed to serve as the Dean through the formation, growth, and new life given to us in the NALC and Minkota Mission District. My thanks to the Minkota District, our Bp John and all your staff and the other Deans for wonderful and blessed time to serve in our church. Please join me in prayer for Pr. Lyle Belleque that together we will work beside him in serving our Lord Jesus and in prayer for the faithful work that is before him.”
