Pastor Mark Aune

What I actually do at Augustana As one of the pastors I am privileged to serve the congregation in preaching, teaching, pastoral care as well as leading the staff. I love the relationships with parishioners that are central to my work as a parish pastor. Walking with people as we all seek to follow Jesus is an important part of what I do and I love the fact we do it together, in community.

My favorite Bible verse is . . .
Galatians 2:19b-20 – “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

When I’m not at Augustana, you can find me . . . On my bicycle along with my wife, Janis or at our small lake cabin near Crane Lake in the north country where I can take a hot sauna and jump into a cold lake.

One more thing I’d like you to know . . .I like to read crime fiction and two of my favorite authors are William Kent Krueger and Jo Nesbo.
