David Weeks, Pastor      (c) 952.322.0064


It is a privilege and joy to proclaim the great news of God's love and forgiveness in Christ Jesus, and to embark on an adventure of Christian discipleship with the saints of St. Peter's Lutheran. I began serving St. Peter's in December 2013. My prior calls include Big Bend/West Bank, Milan, MN; St. Stephen, Marshall, MN; and Trinity, Watertown, MN. I attended Waldorf College for two years and graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Philosophy. I received my M.Div. from Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN. My wife, Michon, and I are proud parents of three adult sons. We feel very blessed to be here in Northfield. We enjoy outdoor activities such as biking, golfing, running, canoeing and camping. We like to visit art museums and attend concerts in both Northfield and the Twin Cities.
