REV. KEATON CHRISTIANSEN
Rev. Keaton Christiansen was called into the Holy Ministry in 2015, after studying at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne. Since then, he has served at Trinity Lutheran Church and School in St. Francis, Minnesota, as Associate Pastor and Executive Director for the school programs. Along with preaching and teaching and administering the sacraments, he worked to oversee Trinity’s grade school and preschool programs, taught religion and classes in the Latin language, led the youth group to the Higher Things conferences during the summer, and assisted with the Manna Market food distribution program.
Keaton graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Hillsdale College in southern Michigan, and a Masters of Divinity from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne Indiana. There, he stayed for a year as graduate assistant for the Systematics Department, and has completed coursework towards a Masters in Sacred Theology.
Pastor Christiansen met his lovely wife Rebekah at Hillsdale College. They have been happily married for 8 years, and are blessed to have four children: Karin (5), Matthias (3), Eleia (2), and Gideon (1 month). They enjoy family time, reading, cooking, music, board games, and being goofballs with one another. They’re looking forward to meeting you all, and someday when they get settled in, hope to cultivate a small peaceful garden.
