“I’m looking forward to meeting neighbors and friends in South Minneapolis. Our diversity is a gift from God, something we must simply celebrate,” said Dempewolf. “My life has been enriched by the people I’ve met along the way, especially those whose backgrounds differ from my own.”
Dempewolf is originally from Southeastern Minnesota, near Rochester, and has lived in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Boston, and Paris. After working for 3M Company for several years, she entered the ministry in 2005 and was ordained a full-elder in 2008. Living Spirit UMC is her second pastoral appointment. Her first was White Bear Lake UMC where she served for five years.
