  • Kevin Feder - Pastor for Family Ministries

    Pastor Kevin has been married to his lovely wife for 9 years and together they have three children: Lydia, Elise, and Ben. Kevin earned the B.A. in Psychology and Bible from Northwestern College and he is currently working on the M.A. in Biblical Theology from the same school (he took a 2 year hiatus to study Greek at Bethlehem Baptist Church). He loves Jesus and his truth and is committed to serving the Church with it. Besides being a pastor and the proudest minivan owner (family man), Kevin is a former athlete who would rather play sports than watch them—although, with a family, watching is often more realistic! If not sports, you might find Kevin somewhere near Grand Marais, not in the cute shops, but on the Superior hiking trail or in the riverbeds searching for hidden waterfalls. After helping his wife and children to love God more Kevin would love to pass on his enthusiasm for God’s awesome creation.
