Brenda Brown
Regional Coordinator

Hello, my name is Brenda Brown and my Husband Pastor Paul Brown and I have been married for 38 years. We have 3 grown children, Adam, Aaron and Anne and 1 grandchild, Noah.

I attended Lutheran MN Via de Cristo in Northern MN, Bemidji in 1989, Weekend #128. I quit counting how many week-ends I have attended. Before that I was involved in Red River Valley TEC, starting in High School. I have been Musician mostly, because that’s where my gifts are strongest, but I thoroughly enjoy serving as Leadership and other capacities. I served on the Lutheran MN Via De Cristo Board in the Music position years ago,  and have served almost yearly.

I attended my first NLS gathering just last month, July 2023 in Indianapolis, IN and am excited to serve in the Regional 2 Coordinator Position.  My hope, is that I am just that, a Resource and a coordinator of what is going on between the Region. Please contact me if you need help.

We are currently serving at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Princeton, MN. We have moved to 7 churches in my husband’s 37 years in Ministry. I have had many jobs along the way. My current Full-time job is a Branch Team Service Manager for Edward Jones in Forest Lake, MN and I have been working there for 18 years.

I am very passionate about Via de Cristo and will work hard to keep everyone informed as to what is happening in our Region 2.   

God loves you and so do I!
