In February, Grace Lutheran Church of Sisseton welcomed a new pastor to lead their congregation, the Rev. Josh Knudsen, along with his wife Marti, and their three children. Both Knudsens have fond memories of growing up in Lutheran congregations, and knew in their teenage years, one in South Dakota, and one in Iowa, that they wanted to serve the Lord one day.

Josh grew up in Rapid City where he attended South Canyon Lutheran Church, and felt the faith of his grandparents and parents as a constant presence.
