Loren Nelson has served as pastor of the Madison East District since 2019. Before that, Pastor Nelson pastored in Indiana before becoming the Youth Director and then Executive Secretary in the Dakota Conference.
“I chose to go into pastoral ministry because I had good mentors growing up,” said Pastor Nelson, “and I wanted to be that kind of a person and give back to my church. My wife and I consider our churches and our schools family!”
Pastor Nelson and his wife, Sue, have two children, Lucas and Madison. In their free time they enjoy getting outside, riding bikes, playing games, and spending time with friends.
