High-energy and fun are typical in the SONBURST program for 7th-12th+ graders. The campers stay in cabins with counselors and have a blast with the often ridiculously fun activities dreamed up by each year’s staff. 
Bring spending money if you would like, but keep any excessive amounts of money or valuables locked at the registration desk.

Kristian 200x300

Kristian Anderson was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Growing up, he was loosely affiliated with 59th Street Lutheran Brethren Church through their children's ministries and youth group, but he didn't accept Christ until he was in his early twenties. God led him back to 59th Street Lutheran Brethren Church, where he came to know Jesus as his Lord and Savior, where he met his wife, Mary, and felt the call into full-time ministry. He served as the Pastor for youth at 59th Street until he felt a call to attend Seminary. He then moved to Fergus Falls, MN where he attended Lutheran Brethren Seminary while pastoring Living Faith Church in Fergus Falls. After finishing his Master’s of Divinity he took a call to Triumph Lutheran Brethren Church in Moorhead, MN where he serves as the East Campus Pastor. He loves to eat bacon, watch the Yankees, play board games, darts, and smoke large pieces of meat.
