Pastor Dave Barkow

​July 2009 - Present​​
Dave has served as the pastor at Christ the Lord since 2009 when he graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary.  His greatest joys in ministry are preaching and sharing God’s Word with individuals and families in a personal manner.

God has blessed Dave and his wife Rachel with three children: Gabrielle (6), Asher (4), and Anna (barely 1).  Dave loves living in the Twin Cities area and enjoys going to Wild games, the Guthrie, a craft brewery for board games with the kids, and walking tours.  In Cottage Grove you can find him at the gym, one of the awesome parks in town, or catching up with someone over coffee or a pizza.
