My name is David Gielow and I am humbled to be a part of the Shepherds in Training. The Church is the hope for the world and I believe that God is stirring peoples hearts to be on God's mission here. I desire to be a part of encouraging, protecting and helping this church, myself included, to go and make disciples.
It is humbling to serve as an Elder Shepherd. I have discovered the value and design of a plurality in leadership; through scripture, we are working together to seek Christ and His will for us. We hold one another accountable for the care of His Church and interpretation of His Word. We are always considering our purpose: that we exist to love, serve and proclaim, so that Jesus may be known and followed. I am excited to nurture this purpose!
Children's Ministry Director
I am humbled and blessed to have the opportunity to show God's love to His children. I have a passion for helping children become respectful, responsible children of God who know they are loved, saved from their sins, to understand their value and worth in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior and to teach them the importance of a personal relationship with God our Father and Creator. I'm excited to help equip families to raise up the gift God has blessed them with, their children!
Children's Ministry Intern
I am excited to be a part of this role to learn and grow in leadership and learn more about Children's ministry! I am also excited to be able to watch your children grow into the children God has made them to be. A few things about me--I graduated with a paraprofessional degree from St. Cloud Technical and Community College. I love working with the young children and watching them become who they are as themselves and watching their personalities grow! I also am working at Camp JIM as an intern and learning to grow in many different ways there. I really enjoy being able to spend time with friends & family, coffee, messing around with my camera and playing my guitar and piano. I am excited to be able to work with your kiddos this year!
Juliane has been leading worship teams off and on for the past 20 years.
She enjoys working with others to discover their passion and gifts of music to serve and praise the LORD. Juliane desires worship to be transformational, to go beyond the Sunday morning service and be ingrained in our everyday lives. As you serve, you’ll notice she also likes to have fun together, building team unity while we grow deeper in our understanding of what it means to lead worship and to praise the LORD in all things. If you are interested in serving on our teams please contact her! We’d love for you to join our worship team.
Worship Ministry Intern
I am a senior in high school at Pillager. I also am doing some online classes through Oak Hills Christian College in Bemidji. I am looking forward to growing and learning while being an intern here at FBC. Singing has always been a part of me throughout my whole life. I've been singing in church for many years whether it's through a youth band or kids choir. God has given me this love to play music and lead worship for His glory. I hope to lead the church in a time to be in the presence of God through the songs we have done while sprinkling in some new songs.
I am grateful that I am able to serve at FBC as the Communications Coordinator. In this role I am able to continue to grow in my gifts of administration and communication. I enjoy working behind the scenes to be able to support the rest of our team. I am excited to see Church continue to grow in the way God has for it. I am passionate about seeing others grow deeper in their relationship with the Lord, as well as watching the light click for new believers!
Student Ministry Co-Director
My role at FBC in youth ministry is one of the most rewarding roles I have had. I have a passion to see youth living for the Lord. Watching them take their steps in faith is so exciting. Jeremiah 29:11 is a verse I love to share with youth.
Student Ministry Co-Director
I am excited to be working with our Adrenaline youth again this year! I am passionate about our Adrenaline program because I want every teen to know they are loved and important. My goal is to help teenagers grow in their relationship with God and help make FBC a place where teens can feel like they belong, connect to others, and encounter God.
