Event Speaker


Rev. Jonathan Swenson is a pastor and an actor who loves to tell Bible stories in fresh and creative ways to encourage people to know Jesus more deeply. (He is also a huge MN Vikings fan!) Jonathan has a B.A. Degree in Psychology, Theater and Music from Gustavus Adolphus College, and a Masters of Divinity Degree from Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN. After serving as a parish pastor for nearly 20 years, Jonathan launched Paraphrase Theatre, a Christian drama ministry. Since then he has been performing and sharing the good news of Jesus at churches, conferences and retreats all around the country. He is also the Director of Programming at Mount Carmel Ministries in Alexandria, MN where he lives with his wife of 25 years, Rev. Jana Swenson. Together they are the proud parents of two daughters, Christina Joy and Caitlyn Grace. For more information, visit



If we had to tell you about The Junker Georges, and apparently we do, this is what we’d say: They are an acoustic-based rock/folk duo/tri/quartet, depending on who actually shows up. Founding member Ryan and Todd have been playing music coast to coast since 2003. As primary songwriter and guitarist, Todd is a Level-12 Disney trivia master, coffee connoisseur, and was voted “Most Likely to be Killed by a Pirate.” Ryan (drums/muscle) would much rather be playing for the Flyers, Eagles, or Phillies. He is serving a record 23rd consecutive term as President of the West Roebling Aerosmith fan club. They love Jesus, eating, and hanging out. What else is there? Be on the lookout for special “Mystery Band Members” this weekend for extra bonus points!
