About our Pastor

Pastor Charles Owens has been serving as our minister since December of 2013.
Prior to being called as our pastor, Charles served as a seminary intern for one year at Robbinsdale United Church of Christ in Robbinsdale, Minnesota, and as a sabbatical
supply minister at First Congregational Church in Alexandria, Minnesota.  He is a 2013 graduate of United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities and upon graduation he was awarded the Clyde J. Steckel Award for excellence in pastoral care and counseling.
In addition to his duties at our church,
Charles serves as the president of the Osage Ministerial Alliance.

Outside of church, Charles is an avid adventurer, having taken three lengthy trips to Southeast Asia for both education and personal travel.  He loves taking day trips to see different parts of the great state of Iowa.  Pastor Charles is an avid reader of both
fiction and non-fiction. An avid runner, Charles always tries to run two or three
miles per day--unless the weather is bad.
