Pastor Jeff Heiderscheit has been at St. John’s since October of 2012. He grew up in Bellevue, Iowa (a town on the Mississippi River just south of Dubuque) on a farm 7 miles out in the country. He went to college at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa and majored in Music Education. After some public school teaching and church youth director work,  he attended seminary at Luther Seminary in St. Paul where he earned a Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry.  He has been married to his wife Annie since 1991.  They have two daughters, Grace and Caroline, and a small, fluffy dog named Oliver. Pastor Jeff loves music!  Guitar playing and singing has a way of making his bones relax.  He also loves riding his bike and reading a good book.  Family cooking night on Sunday evenings holds a special place too. Pastor Jeff says this about St. John’s: “I love how the Spirit is moving in our congregation.  We know how to laugh together.  When a community can laugh together they can tackle anything!”


Pastor Kaitlyn Forster has served at St. John’s since October of 2014. She is from New Hope, MN and went to Concordia, Moorhead for college. Go Cobbers! There she majored in Religion with a minor in Psychology. She took a year off in between college and seminary and worked three retail jobs, with one of the months having them all overlap! She graduated Luther Seminary with a Masters in Divinity in May 2014. She and her husband Scott are newlyweds who enjoy running, hiking, reading, and playing board games. They also have a cat, Noodle, but they mostly call him Bubba. For their honeymoon, Kaitlyn and Scott travelled to New Zealand they’d go back in a heartbeat if the plane ride weren’t so long. When asked about St. John’s, Pastor Kaitlyn says, “I love the people at St John’s! It is a huge joy knowing that when I come in to “work” I get to interact with amazing, talented, and unique people. I also really enjoy the mission trips and am looking forward to the Intergenerational Mission Trip opportunity. There is something beautiful about leaving our comfort zones and serving alongside each other.”
