Meet Our Staff

Pastor Dan Hoeger

Senior Pastor

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.

Pastor Kristin Rice

Pastor for Intergenerational Ministry

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.

Shari Clark

Parish Administrator

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.

Jerry Gunderson

Director of Worship and Music

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.

Donald Wade

Director of Faith Formation

As Director of Faith Formation, I oversee, support, facilitate, and partner with pastors, church staff, class leaders, and volunteers in our Sunday School, Confirmation, Youth, Adult Education, Small Faith Group, and Worship Leadership programs aimed at developing a life-long foundation of faith, learning, and service for all members of our congregation. It is through the generous giving of their time and talents by our church employees and caring volunteers that we are able to provide a wide variety of programs that both educate, invigorate, and continually build our relationships with one another and with our Lord. Volunteer opportunities are always available, and your Spiritual Gifts are always welcome!

Tammy Follensbee

Director of Senior Ministries

I am here to support All Saints senior members and their families spiritually, emotionally, and socially. I recognize the need for rich, engaging opportunities for younger retirees in a changing senior ministry landscape, while also being cognizant of the real challenges and isolation older seniors sometimes face. In addition, I lead the Senior Ministry team, which is a group of volunteers who assist with planning and facilitating programs, activities, and educational events for our senior members. I completed a degree in Family and Human Development in 2017 from Arizona State University and I am currently a hospice volunteer. I enjoy being present and listening to the experiences that our senior members have to offer. I will strive to create and maintain enriched, spiritual relationships with our senior members and their families. I am so blessed to be in a position to walk alongside senior members who have so much to offer to the church and our community.

As Administrative Assistant I support the day to day operations of the church office. My duties include answering phone calls, recording membership attendance, organizing volunteers for Sunday services, updating membership events (marriage, address changes, family changes, Baptisms, Confirmations, etc.), mailing letters and notifications, and additional ancillary duties.

Carole Becker

Grief Support

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!

Betty Erickson

Director of Children's Music

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.
