Youth Ministry

Youth are the future and the present of our churches. The CLB seeks to unleash our youth to be leaders in our churches and denomination. We stay in touch with youth workers throughout the Church of the Lutheran Brethren, supporting, encouraging and resourcing our youth leaders and pastors.

Rev. Mark Johannesen

CLB Youth Ministries Communications

My primary calling is to serve as associate pastor at True Life Church in Rochester, MN. I am no expert, but I love teens and hope to pass on my years of experience to the youth workers of the CLB. In addition I serve the CLBA as the Youth Ministries Communications point person.
I stay in touch with youth workers throughout the Church of the Lutheran Brethren, and do my best to share information that I gain from those conversations results here at CLBA.org and our Youth Workers Facebook Group.
