Per Nestingen


Per grew up in South Minneapolis attending St. Peder’s Lutheran Church.  Every Summer he would head to Sugar Creek Bible Camp to participate in a new adventure every year.  Later, after finishing his college education at Augustana College (now University) in Sioux Falls, SD, he returned to work at Sugar Creek Bible Camp as a High School counselor and then later as one of the Assistant Program Directors.  His first youth ministry job was in Delano, MN at Light of Christ Lutheran Church before he found his way to Farmington Lutheran in February of 2015.  During his time at FLC, he has enjoyed walking alongside the families of the Confirmation students and growing the High School ministry into a program where our youth feel cared for.
