Meet Our Staff

Senior Pastor

Pastor Dan Hoeger 

I preach, teach, counsel and console both members and visitors of our congregation. It is my honor to lead and supervise our paid staff. As a staff we strategize and coordinate with church members who do the majority of hands on ministry at All Saints. I also am called to serve both the community and the church beyond our congregation.

 Jerry Gunderson

I plan liturgy and music for our worship services and lead the worshipping assembly in songs of prayer, proclamation and praise. Our music ministry includes a wide variety of vocal and instrumental ensembles and soloists, and my leadership of these groups includes scheduling, choosing repertoire, composing/arranging, and directing rehearsals. I enjoy working as part of our staff ministry team, and I provide administrative leadership to All Saints’ worship committee. I also sing with two community choirs, which is a great way to get new ideas and make contacts with local musicians. I am blessed and thankful to serve God’s people here at All Saints.

Joe Schwartz

With the help of many volunteers, a heaven-sent assistant and the grace of God, I oversee the Sunday School program here at All Saints. Children from 2 years old through 6th grade meet with their peers, teen and adult shepherds and teachers for our rotational lesson program. I also plan family oriented events such as the annual picnic and movie and game nights to help build relationships between our families. The Jr. and High schoolers gather for monthly meetings and meals, as well as lock-ins and weekend retreats. Almost every year the youth get on a plane or bus and head off on a mission trip. We have traveled to places such as Colorado, California, Michigan and New Orleans just in the past few years. I am truly blessed to be joining these kids and families on their faith journeys.

Pastor for Intergenerational Ministry

Pastor Kristin Rice

What’s a “Pastor for Intergenerational Ministry?”  I’m so glad you asked!  My responsibilities in this role, first and foremost, will be to serve as a pastor to the whole congregation through worship leadership, preaching, and pastoral care.  I will also continue to serve as Stewardship Team Lead and will work closely with our Stephen Ministry leaders, while engaging with the Congregational Council in our ongoing visioning work.  Additionally, I bear some responsibility for helping our members learn, grow, and experience fellowship through the various ages and stages of life.  This includes oversight of our staff and programs in the areas of senior ministries, children and family ministries, and youth ministry/confirmation.  In addition to supporting quality programs and milestone recognitions that are appropriate for each age group, part of my job is to help create opportunities for people from different age groups to engage their faith together.                                        Contact me at 602.866.9191 ext. 109



Maritta Fink

I lead the Senior Ministry Team, which is a volunteer group of older adults. The team creates, plans and facilitates programs, activities and educational events for elders. We also provide resources related to elder care and aging issues. Most importantly, we strive to make and maintain relationships with the elderly population of the church. It is a privilege and a blessing to work with our older members.

Betty Erickson

My goal is to provide the children of All Saint’s with a background in Christian music, help them to develop an appreciation for music in worship, and allow them to find the joy in participating in the music ministry by singing and using instruments.  I lead the singing for preschool and kindergarten Sunday School classes, the Alleluia Singers (choir of 1stthrough 6th graders), and organize the musical Christmas play for preschool through 6th grade students. Many thanks to all the volunteers who help and support our children’s music.

Carole Becker


I participate in and/or serve as the staff liaison for Grief Support.  Grief Support Ministries seek to be responsive to the spiritual, emotional, physical and mental health of those who participate in our church family as well as those who come to us from our community. Because what we do and say, and how we serve in our congregations and communities, matters to the whole church of God, we continue to seek out those among us who are in need of healing, uplifting and renewal in order for them to move forward with their changing and, sometimes, challenging lives.  What a privilege to be in ministry with so many caring people!

Shari Clark

I oversee the day to day operation of the church office. I support the pastors and program staff as needed. I assist the Publication Administrator, Website/Media Administrator and Financial Administrator as needed. I keep our membership and contribution database current. I keep track of the Master Calendar and schedule room usage so there is no events/meetings trying to be in the same room at the same time. I make sure the Nursery is staffed when needed and there is a Facility Manager on duty during events/meetings that are schedule at the church. I oversee the property maintenance that is needed on campus. I process the Child/Youth Protection Volunteer forms for those who volunteer/work with All Saints children and youth.

I communicate to the congregation and the local community through the Weekly Parish Press located in the weekend worship bulletin with mini articles and announcements of upcoming events that take place in the next few weeks.  I write the monthly Saints Alive Newsletter with all the details of upcoming events during that month.  I also assist the Parish Administrator in daily office duties.  Thank you for allowing me to serve the Lord in my creative way.

Donald Wade

As Worship Leadership & Adult Education Coordinator, I recruit, train, educate, communicate, and schedule weekly Worship Service and Hospitality Ministry volunteers.  Providing assistance in the creation of a memorable and welcoming worship experience depends on the active and dedicated volunteers from our congregation that are so giving of their time, talents, and spiritual gifts.  All members of the multi-generational All Saints community, from  5-year old kindergartners to 95-year old seniors are involved in all aspects of welcoming members and visitors and fulfilling various worship service roles.  I am also involved with our Small Faith Groups and Adult Education courses, Bible studies, New Member Discovery classes, and informational sessions to help our adult members share fellowship, continue to grow their faith,  and strengthen their love of Christ and his church on Earth.
