Our Staff

  • Jeff Burton

    Interim Lead Pastor

    Jeff joined our team in March of 2020.  He is responsible for working with staff, leadership team, and other ministry teams to ensure that the church continues to advance its mission and vision during this time of transition.  When Jeff is not working, he enjoys riding the great Minnesota bike trails, especially those in the Three Rivers trail system.

  • Sam Randall

    Next Generations Pastor

    After a sojourn through Chicago and West Michigan, Sam, a born and raised Minnesotan, returned to the great north in 2015 to serve as the Student Ministries Pastor here at MGCC. 

    The mission of the Student Ministries is to “cultivate a community of students who are passionate about Jesus and passionate about one another”. Sam’s favorite thing about his job is the adventures that he gets to participate in with the youth. 

    His prayer is that after graduation, every student would go to their next stage in life believing that God loves them and has a purpose for their life.

  • Sadee Mitchell

    Interim Youth Leader

    After two years “up north” working at Covenant Pines Bible Camp, Sadee ventured southward to hone her parallel parking skills and dive into student ministries.  Some of Sadee’s favorite things include nature, a good book, walks, and the color brown.  Her desire is for students to grasp how much God loves them AND likes them.

  • Quinn Olson

    Children's Ministry Director

    Quinn is from Fulda, Minnesota and moved to Minneapolis to study Children and Family Ministry at the University of Northwestern. She joined Maple Grove Covenant Church in 2018 as the full time Children’s Ministry Director. Quinn has a passion to equip families to help them grow closer to God and closer together.  In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband Pete and is always up for getting coffee with friends. 

  • Sam Goebel

    Worship Leader

    From Minnesota to Tennessee and back, Sam joined the team at MGCC in April 2019 and is hoping to further the musical excellence that marks the music ministry. His hope is that the ministry will continue to cultivate that special external expression of internal joy that is created through musical worship. When not playing or writing music, you would probably be able to find Sam rock climbing, going for a run, or making obscure pop culture references with the people in his life.

  • Wayne Westberg

    Facilities Manager

    Wayne Westberg joined our staff January 2019. Wayne's duties include keeping our HVAC systems functional, coordinating repairs, contacting technicians and making himself available for small or large tasks at MGCC.  Wayne and his wife, Dianne, have attended MGCC since 2003. Wayne has served as a member of the Elder board and Leadership Team. He is currently a staff liaison to the Facilities Ministry team. In his free time he enjoys golfing, reading historical fiction, travel and spending time with friends and family.

Leadership Team

Our Leadership Team in collaboration with the Lead Pastor prayerfully discern God’s will for the church, evaluate the execution of the mission and direction of the church, provide spiritual leadership, oversee the business affairs of the church, facilitate resolution of disagreements and conflicts, or spiritual recovery, and cultivate a community marked by love.
