Head Pastor — Rev. Jens and Karen Notstad
Jens grew up on a dairy farm in south central Wisconsin, and before moving back to his home state he helped grow the Redeemer Parish (currently Cornerstone North) as a lay catechist and evangelist. Jens and Karen were married on July 4, 2015.
Karen is from Oak Park, IL, and worked for 10 years as a high school math teacher while volunteering with Young Life before moving to Wisconsin with Jens. She has extensive experience in different methods of education and learning styles, and has recently embarked on the homeschooling journey! They have four children–Wilma, Anders, Nels, and Peder. They love spending time as a family, reading, hiking, and drinking coffee.
Jens and Karen serve with Greenhouse raising up new congregations in southeastern Wisconsin as part of Immanuel Anglican Parish, of which Jens is Lead Pastor. They currently live in Whitewater, WI, and desire to see the campuses renewed, the countryside reawakened, and Wisconsin reclaimed for the Gospel.
