Pastor Tim Tostengard

Although a native of the Upper Midwest, I have come to love the big skies of Montana.  I grew up in Sioux Falls, SD, Jamestown, ND, and then graduated from high school in St. Paul, MN.  Further education included a B.A. in English from Augustana College in 1984 and an M.A. in English from the University of Nebraska in 1987.

In 1991, I graduated from Lutheran Northwestern Theological Seminary in St. Paul.  I have served pastorates in Spokane, WA and Decorah, IA. 

My wife Marcia and I have a blended family that includes five children: Annika 26, Renee 23, Jessi 20, Eli 19 and Zach 18.  They keep us on our toes, and it is a delight to be a part of their lives.  My hobbies include reading, skiing, golfing, gardening, and drinking a good cup of coffee. In 2000, I came to serve at American in Billings.  I feel privileged to serve this mission-minded and caring congregation.  We would love to have you worship with us and consider making us your community of faith.
