Wes Asheim – Pastor
(952) 500-2187

I am thrilled to be at Christ Lutheran Church for the second time. From 2010 to 2015 I served as the Director of Youth and Family ministries at Christ Lutheran before taking a pastor position in Northwest Connecticut. I returned as associate Pastor starting in January 2021. I have been involved in ministry for nearly 20 years, serving churches in North Dakota, Minnesota, and Connecticut as well as spending time as a camp counselor for a few summers while in college.

I grew up in a small town in Eastern North Dakota (Portland) and attended college at NDSU in Fargo where I completed way more calculous classes than any History major ever needs. I just completed my Master of Divinity degree from Lutheran Brethren Seminary in Fergus Falls, MN. 

I love Jesus, my amazing wife Anya, and our two sons, Jacob, and Thaddeus. I have a great passion and calling for teaching and shepherding others in their relationship with the Lord.

Some fun facts about me…

Favorite Person of the Bible: John the Baptist and Moses.

Favorite Bible Verse: Ephesians 2:8-10. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Favorite Book: Anything by C.S. Lewis. Favorites include “A Horse and His Boy” and “The Screwtape Letters”.

Favorite Hobby: I love watching movies, my favorites are Christopher Nolan movies, The Lord of the Rings, and anything Star Wars. I love watching and playing sports, particularly basketball. I also love exploring new places (restaurants, cities, bike trails, furniture stores, etc…) with my wife.

Tami Greenwood – Office Administrator
 (763) 479-2373 ext.16


I am the administrator here at Christ Lutheran Church. My journey here began in July of 2014. It is such a privilege to be here! I put together our worship folders, newsletters, PowerPoints, assist our accountant and much more.

I have a wonderful, funny, creative, and musically talented husband named Bill. We love being in the great outdoors together biking, cross country skiing, kayaking, and taking our Silver Labrador Buddy on walks. I enjoy singing with Bill and sharing his original music whenever we can. We have seven amazing adult children. 

I am so grateful that God uses our struggles in life for His good purpose ~ Romans 8:28. I am passionate about my walk with Jesus, and I want to reflect him in all I do.
