Outreach Pastor

Pastor Brian Roloff joined Ascension in July 2012 as the outreach pastor. As the outreach pastor he is called to oversee and give general direction to Ascension's evangelism and education efforts including witness training, visitor follow-up, promotion, VBS, preschool, and new member instruction and assimilation. Pastor Roloff says,

“What a joy and an honor we have to tell others the good news about Jesus—that through his suffering, death, and rising from the grave, God gives us the absolute holiness that his perfection demands from every person! Forgiveness and eternal life in heaven are all free gifts of God given to us by faith. Now that’s news that changes how we live and gives our every word and act of love eternal purpose and meaning.”

Pastor Roloff graduated from UW-Stevens Point in 2002 with a double major in History and Social Studies for Secondary Education. After being elected to and serving on his church’s board of evangelism, he enrolled in and completed the seminary certification program at Martin Luther College. He then earned his Master’s of Divinity degree at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary. Prior to joining Ascension, he served as a vicar (an intern pastor) at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Columbus, Ohio. Pastor Roloff and his wife, Christy, live in Brooklyn Park, MN, with their three young children.
