OUR Pastor

Reverend Leslie Dalstra

I am a native of St. Louis, Missouri.  I attended Indiana University for my undergraduate studies where I earned a BA with a double major in Religious Studies and History (with honors).  My junior year was spent in Canterbury, England at the University of Kent.  I attended Eden Theological Seminary for a Masters of Divinity degree and was ordained in the Mid-America Region at Webster Groves CC in May of 1999.  I have served churches in Missouri and Texas prior to moving to Iowa.

I am married to my fabulous husband, Dan Dalstra (who happens to be a rock star photographer and photojournalist).  My daughter Eva is a student at Iowa State (Go State!), and my son is a student at FMHS (Go Bloodhounds!).  We also have two pets, Naomi (our dog) and Papi Chulo (a kitten we found at Taco Bell!).  Our house is rarely quiet and is often busy!

 To receive sermon summaries and updates from the pastor request to be subscribed to a weekly electronic mailing by emailing me.

Looking forward to meeting you!

grace and peace,  Pastor Leslie
