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.
Office ManagerHello! I’m Mary Chandler, the new Office Manager at Covenant Lutheran church. I recently completed 27 month’s service in the Peace Corps, serving in the country of Georgia on the Black Sea coast. Prior to that, I ran my own company in Madison. I am a lifelong Madison resident, with 2 children and 2 grandchildren also living in Madison. I love plants and seek out the wildest places I can find!
Thank you all for your generous welcome and patience as I come on board!
