BETHEL STAFF

FROISLAND, PR. BRENDA; PASTOR.jpg
Rev. Brenda Froisland
Pastor

I am a wife, aunt, godmother, sister, daughter, friend, cousin, honorary mom, and child of God who is blessed to be the pastor at Bethel Lutheran Church.  I live in a tiny house with my wife, Mary, and our two large cats.  When I am not pastoring I enjoy fishing, cooking with friends, spending time with family, traveling, supporting the Minnesota Orchestra, and spoiling my honorary grandchildren.  I earned my MDiv from Luther Seminary in 2005, was ordained at Bethel in 2012, and serve on Reference and Council, as well as the Synod Council, of the Minneapolis Area Synod.

Rev. Jeanne Hartfield
Interim Pastor (covering for Sabbatical)

I am delighted to be able to serve at Bethel and support your community and Pastor Brenda as she takes a well-deserved sabbatical. After taking a year off for rest and renewal, I'm excited to be part of a worshipping community again--especially one that is so aligned with a theology of welcome. I look forward to partnering with you in living out your mission during my time with you.

Susie George
Office Manager

Susie joined the staff here at Bethel in 2014. Having been raised a Catholic, she is still working on learning the “Lutheran Way.” She says Bethel is a great congregation and she is honored to be a part of this organization. Not only is she learning about the congregation, this congregation supports her and her passion regarding Immigration issues. This is a win- win relationship.
