Meet the team
Leaders: Brian and Angela Norby
The Norby’s are a blended family living in Ramsey, Mn. They have 5 adult children and 6 grandchildren, 1 lost to miscarriage. Brian owns an erosion company Norby Land Corp and Angie has recently become a Life Coach Practitioner. For well over a decade, Brian and Angie had been members with Living Hope Church, now in Rogers. When they began attending, the Church at that time was in its “plant” transformation. The Norby’s are far from unfamiliar to a Church in a box, moving from place to place. In 2019, Brian felt a call to be a part of an upcoming AFLC Church plant. Following that prompt, he inquired on some leads that led him to the roots of Resurrection Free Lutheran. In the beginning RFLC started with the hearts of Ben and Adela Jore, Jason Gudim and Nathan Olson, meeting in the living room of the Jore home. Now the Church has landed in Ramsey, after 2 moves in St. Paul, RFLC is held in the Norby’s living room or in their backyard taking in God’s glory. The Norby’s are people of community, they enjoy gathering with believers and unbelievers alike, which is why they are so attracted to such an opportunity to escort seekers to the foot of the Cross, hosting RFLC in their home as well as being a part of the core of its beginning.
Secretary: Dana Shanks
I am Dana R. Shanks from Otsego, MN, I am a wife, a mother, and a follower in Christ. I am newer in my walk with Christ (learning wise); but, have always had Christ in my heart. What has drawn me to Rasmey Resurrection Free Lutheran Church is the Congregation members and the Family feeling, that everyone is welcomed as they are, the Sermons preached (how they help me learn how to continue to Glorify the Lord day-to-day), and my kids learning about the Good Lord in Sunday school.
Children’s Director: Hannah St. Cyr
I am Hannah St.Cyr from Champlin MN and have been blessed by God with amazing parents and a home church in Anoka. The first thing that drew me to Resurrection was their passion to meet the need for a biblical church in that area. I thought back to my Anoka home church. Both churches began with the passion to plant a congregation for the area that NEW people could find God. God is continually bringing people together to find Him for the 1st time and the millionth time. Let’s be apart of that together!
Social Media Manager: Leeanna Lunn
As a homeschooling mother of 4 and Pastor’s wife, I have been very grateful for the support I have found in Resurrection. Working with them on social media has been a great blessing to me and has opened up new opportunities to further minister in God’s Kingdom. I am excited to see where God takes Resurrection in her journey.
Our vision is to see a free and living Lutheran congregation take root and grow in the Ramsey, MN region. We began as a home bible study and now worship on Saturday mornings as a house church.
What We Believe:
As conservative Lutherans, you will find that we place a high priority on the Word of God in our services. We incorporate a biblical framework through liturgical elements of our worship and in expository preaching from the pulpit. We also strive to demonstrate a congregational focus and an incorporation of the priesthood of all believers.
Rooted & Growing
Currently our house church meets weekly on Saturday mornings at 10:30 a.m., with a free lunch following.. Our hope is that as the congregation grows and as we have the ability, that we would find ourselves meeting at our own facility.
