Serve #28 – Dan M. – A man with a heart.
Over the past 12 years I have had the honor to watch Dan Monson as a pastor at NorthRidge Fellowship. This man is filled with a passion to reach out to the people of this world. Dan currently serves as Missions Pastor for NorthRidge Fellowship. He is one of those kind of guys who gives 110% of himself. You see that 110% heartfelt passion for the people when he does outreach events at a mobile home park in the Minneapolis Metro area, you see it as well when he is on a missions trip to Nett Lake Reservation, you can also see it when he takes a missionary team to a long-term mission trip site in Honduras. Over the years, I have seen this heavily bearded man cry because of his heart for people to be made whole.
He knows that inside the walls of NorthRidge Fellowship is a place for people in need of help to restore relationships, get back on their feet, or learn how to better speak English through an ELL (English Language Learners) class that is held regularly within the walls of the church.
I asked Dan why he tirelessly serves with so much heart and he shared that he does it so that people might know Jesus. He knows how a church that has a heart for making a difference can restore homes, be a safe place for the hurting, and create a place to become what you were meant to be and not what the world thinks you are. In simple terms…Dan loves people with his whole heart.
I am continually blown away by Dan and his heart for the people of this world. He wears his emotions on his shirt sleeve, or maybe better said from his eyes as he pours his heart into those he serves.
Thank you Dan for the glimpse of what Jesus must have looked like.
NorthRidge Fellowship is a Converge NorthCentral church that meets in rogers, MN.
