Who is your Pastor?

Our people get asked this question from time to time. It is a fair question.


Pastor David Sohl is a native Nebraskan. He grew up on a farm close to Norfolk, Nebraska where his ancestors were farmers and preachers going back 3 generations. He graduated from high school and Jr college in Norfolk. After that he attended St Paul Bible College, now Crown College, near Waconia MN and graduated with a BA in Bible and Theology. He later attended Moody Bible Institute to do some masters work.


Patty, his wife, grew up on a farm near Waconia MN. Her family milked cows and her Dad worked at Crystal Sugar for a number of years. They met at a veterinary clinic in Waconia, MN where she claims he came to get his distemper shots. [Fake news] Later they got married and God gave them a daughter and a son. The five grand kids came a lot later.


David served a church in Hills City in Northern MN before they got married. After they were married they finished an assistant pastorate at Waconia Alliance Church CMA and then planted a church in New Prague MN. Living Praise Alliance Church was their focus in ministry for the next 8 years. Following their time in new Prague they moved to Detroit Lakes MN and served the Community Alliance Church CMA for 17 years. Since then they have served several churches in interim ministry. David has served the Faith Baptist Church for over 4 years in Nebraska City, NE.


David loves to teach, preach, do pastoral care but his greatest passion is evangelism. David and Patty love to spend time with family, especially their grand kids.
