Pastor Chris Pappenfus
I was raised in the Evangelical Covenant Church, coming to faith in Christ Jesus at a young age, I am grateful for the many Jesus followers who have helped nurture my faith.
I met my wife Allison, while serving at a Covenant Church in New England. We were married in 2001 and have three boys, Ryan, Brendan and Micah. I have served Covenant Churches in New Hampshire, Minnesota and Nebraska in a variety of ministry roles. I was called to serve as Senior Pastor of First Covenant Willmar in the summer of 2017.
Philippians 2 is an important passage of Scripture for me as I try to walk in obedience to the calling the LORD has extended to me. I am humbled and grateful to be a part of this wonderful congregation that is First Covenant Church.
