In February 2010, Central Lutheran Church in Elk River, MN planted a new worshiping community at the Elk River YMCA called the WHY Church.
In the spring of 2012, Bjorn’s role shifted focus entirely to growing the WHY Church.
Now by God’s grace the WHY Church is able to officially extend a pastoral call.
Sunday July 28th the WHY Church membership voted unanimously to extend a call to Pastor Bjorn to serve as its Pastor.
August 1st marks Pastor Bjorn’s first day as Pastor of the WHY Church.
On Sunday August 4th at its 9:30 Worship Service, the WHY Church will officially install Pastor Bjorn Dixon. Guests as part of the service will be Pastor Paul Spaulding from LCMC and Pat Hackman, Congregational President from Central Lutheran Church.
And all God’s people said “AMEN!”
