Lord of Life Lutheran Church

North Pole, Alaska

Pastor Amanda has been leading and growing with Lord of Life since July 2009, when she and her husband Jason moved to North Pole. This was just after her graduation from Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota with a Master of Divinity. She is the first one to laugh at the word "master", as if an understanding of God could be mastered.  

But she's not a pastor because she knows everything. She's a pastor because she loves God and loves people. The opportunity to walk with people through their questions and joys and heartache is the greatest gift of being a pastor. She's most interested in discovering God at work in our Monday through Saturday lives, and how we live out our faith in the world. It's not always easy (she knows that all too well), but it's always worth stepping out in faith.

Together with the Lord of Life community and her family, she's simply trying to live as faithfully as she can, and helping others figure out what that means for them too. She looks forward to learning and growing with the people of Lord of Life for many years to come!
