Workshop: "Recognizing Resources: More than just your budget"
Lars Rood is a Family Ministries Pastor who focuses primarily on birth-8th grade but still hangs out with High School students a lot too. He’s a long time youth worker who got his start in Southern California and then spent 5 years in Texas before heading back home to Washington State last June.
Lars has a passion for teaching/training youth workers and has done that in a variety of conference as well as undergrad and seminary settings. The best way to describe Lars’ gifts is that he loves to be a “connector.” His passion is to get the right people together and see what happens. He also loves hanging out with his wife and kids and finding new coffee shops to up his caffeine intake.
Lars has a M.Div from Fuller Seminary and a Doctorate from George Fox Evangelical seminary and is also an ordained Presbyterian (PCUSA) minister.
