Pastor David Irgens, his wife Kari and their son Magnus live in Eau Claire.
As a Christian I was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran Church, but I’m not your “typical” Lutheran – that said, I think a lot of us Lutherans are less typical than you might suppose. As a minister in Christ I am passionate about hospitality. I believe that one of the greatest gifts that Christ does for us is to remember us to the Father, and as a minister one of the things that I am called to do is build personal relationships with members that mimic this relationship with Christ. I am called to remember each member of the body of Christ to one-another and to God.
Growing up in Iowa City, IA I was active in my home church as well as involved in extracurricular activities and several summer camps. I studied American History and Religion with a minor in Philosophy at Augsburg College in Minneapolis, with the intention of going on to seminary. As an alum of Augsburg, my husband Russell and I have remained connected to the school. I graduated with an MDiv from Luther Seminary in 2007.
Ordained in 2008 I have worked with several congregations from rural to suburban to inner city. I have also worked as a chaplain with the Alaska Police and Fire Ministry. I am a biblical preacher and writer and have been published in several venues including “The Lutheran Forum.”

We want to make Jesus Christ known to all as the one true savior: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We want to share the Gospel message with every generation in the Chippewa Valley, each loved by God and in need of a relationship with Jesus Christ.
We believe, teach, and confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and the gospel of Jesus Christ as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe in Him.
Jesus Christ is the Word of God incarnate, through whom everything was made and through whose life, death, and resurrection God fashions a new creation.
In Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus comissioned us as follows:
'Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. And teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always the very end of the age."'
