Jon Dack begins his ministry at Northwood Church as full – time Children and Family Pastor on Monday, August 12. Jon comes to Northwood following seven years of children’s ministry experience at Faith Covenant in Burnsville and at Northwood’s parent church, Wooddale, in Eden Prairie. While at Wooddale Jon completed his Master’s in Transformational Leadership at Bethel Seminary. Prior to that he graduated from Minnesota State Mankato with a B.S. in Education and earned a state of Minnesota teaching license for 5th – 12th grade.
Jon and his wife Sheri have four young children, Elijah (7), Evan (4), Liam (3) and Keely (five months). Jon brings a proven leadership gift to Northwood, a love for children and families, strong communication skills, a track record of training volunteers, intellectual depth and a “fit” with Northwood culture and ministry. Both Northwood’s Children’s and Family Pastor Search Team and Leadership Team are excited about Jon’s arrival and future at Northwood. He will give leadership to our ministry to children and their families including development of parenting resources and family outreach opportunities. Jon will share his FaithStory in worship services on August 25 followed by a time of prayer and dedication for his ministry with us.
Pastor Brian Doten commented, “Please pray for the Dack’s and go out of your way to welcome them to Northwood as they begin worshipping and serving with us. Also, please consider what you can do to help Northwood’s ministry to children prosper. Finally, please reach out in friendship to Jon and Sheri. We’re their new spiritual family!”
