"And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up." - Galatians 6:9
 

 

 

STEW LINDBERG
Senior Pastor & Elder

Stew, a Minnesota native, was in his senior year of high school in 1976, when God awakened him to saving faith. It was in 1981 when he felt the call to pastor, and after 5 years, planted roots at Vine Church. It has been his joy and privilege to lead and pastor Vine for the better part of 30 years.

Stew would not be the same man, father and pastor without the love and support of his wife, Deb. They have been married since 1982, have 3 sons, 2 daughters, 2 son-in-laws, 1 daughter-in-law and 10 grandchildren.

STEVE CARLISLE
Associate Pastor & Elder

A South Minneapolis native, Steve went to Highland Park High School graduating in 1996. Some time later, in His sovereignty, God caused Steve to see his sin and his need for a savior. With much joy, in 2016 Steve received a BA in Biblical Theology from Bethlehem College and Seminary.

The proud husband to Kristen of 15 years, they are blessed to have 7 children. If you know Steve, he loves his coffee. Maybe a little too much. But a less known fact about him is he is next in line to Bobby Fischer.

MATT STROM
Associate Pastor & Elder

Matt grew up in the small town of Mountain Lake, Minnesota. While attending a summer camp after his freshman year of high school, a counselor laid the Gospel out in front of Matt, and with the Spirit's help, was able to see his sin and his need for Jesus. The trajectory in his desire to study the Word of God has been matched with a desire to teach the people of God, graduating in 2017 from Bethlehem College & Seminary with a Masters of Divinity.

Matt and Krista, his wife of 4 years, are blessed to have 2 children. As a family they often go to the local parks and soak up the short MN summers.
