There will be a new face behind the pulpit at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Cornell, as the church will install a new pastor this February. Pastor Chris Christenson has accepted the call to serve not only St. John’s, but also Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Ladysmith, as a dual-parish.

Christenson comes to the area from First Lutheran Church in La Crescent, Minn., after serving there for more than nine years.
