Meet The Zion Team
Pastor James Gronbeck
I was born and raised in Henning, MN just twenty miles from Zion. I graduated from Henning High School , Fergus Falls Community College with an Associate of Arts degree, Moorhead State University with a Bachelors of Arts in Speech Communications/Mass Communications, and from Luther Seminary in St. Paul with a Master of Divinity Degree.
I have been married to Julie (Baumgartner) Gronbeck and we have three children: Matt (Meghan) Gronbeck, Andrea (Dan) Krenz, and Kristen (Kyle) Akervik. We are the proud grandparents of three: Addyson and Mason Gronbeck, and Savannah Krenz.
Growing up I spent many summers with my cousins on Otter Tail Lake so living in this beautiful part of Otter Tail County is familiar yet still a blessing I treasure. I enjoy every minute I can spend with my grandchildren and children. Previous to Zion I served churches in Cromwell and Wright, MN.
Mitzi joined Zion on April 22, 2020. (Additional info will be forthcoming.)
