Pastor Kent Claussen Gubrud
Pastor Kent has served as a pastor at Christus Victor since October 1998, first as the Associate Pastor of Youth and Family Ministries, and then as Senior Pastor. For him, the most exciting part of serving at Christus Victor is the people: the members of our church and all of the people he gets to meet through our many partnerships and ministries in the community and around the world. It is a blessing to be part of the work of the Holy Spirit, learning, growing, and serving with people who are being touched and shaped by God’s grace in the Word and Sacraments.
