Mark Ellingson, Lead Pastor

10494351_10206031975542593_2391727326974741492_oPastor Mark has been leading the community at Fridley Covenant Church since 2004. He found a new challenge after 19 wonderful years of youth ministry. Mark is a graduate of Bethel University and Seminary.

He is fortunate enough to be married to his wife, Robyn (20+ years), and they have three grown children. With the addition of a granddaughter, Mark has all the thrills and perils of everyday family life. In his off-hours, he loves to paint old cars and participate in body-building competitions (while ignoring his pain-prone knees!).
