Senior PastorI am delighted to be here at Covenant. This congregation has a special place in the Stoughton community and I am excited to be part of it. I believe in God’s transforming power that has the ability to make greatness of all of us. God does this out of deep expressions of love for creation and all of humanity, and the care of God comes through as the church extends itself in ways that Jesus taught us. We are people on a journey, and God’s grace is abundant. This is our comfort and hope.
I have always enjoyed education. I studied Religion at Lakeland University in Sheboygan, went to seminary at Eden Seminary in St. Louis, and obtained a Doctor of Ministry at McCormick Seminary in Chicago.
I am married to Amy Elvekrog and together we have three children, Meredith, Alexander and Samuel. I enjoy spending time with my family, and we enjoy hiking, biking, travel, and riding scooters around town. If you would ask me to name a dream, it would be to live self-sustaining on a piece of land, in a Yurt for a few years.
My name is Jessica Melchor! I am the new office manager here at Covenant Lutheran church. I have lived in Stoughton with my husband, Santiago, for a little over 14 years. We have two children, Alejandro is 12 and Isabella, she will be 11 on the 17th of January. We are a very active family, we love everything outdoors. We are all in martial arts as well, both the kids have their black belts. I am very excited to be here at Covenant and look forward to meeting everyone.
