Ian McConnell

Pastor for Emerging Generations

Ian McConnell

Pastor Ian joined the Normandale community in 2018 as Director of Worship Production and Congregational Development, and became Associate Pastor to Emerging Generations in February 2019 after being ordained. He brings enthusiasm, laughter, and a passion for being co-creators of goodness with God for the sake of those in the margins. Pastor Ian comes to NLC with a decade of diverse experiences in children, youth, and young adult ministry and community development. He studied communication and film production at the University of Minnesota, graduated from Augsburg College, and earned his Master of Divinity from Luther Seminary, with emphasis in youth ministry, justice, and reconciliation. Of the various “hats” he wears, being Rachel’s spouse and Rollie’s dad are the most important ones, and any time he can be with them is time better spent. He loves music, dreaming about/in the garden, being outdoors, happy hours with friends, Timberwolves basketball, and connecting with people. Come say “hi!”
