Pastor Les was Salem Road’s pastor from 1990 to 1995, after which he retired from full-time ministry. He also served Covenant churches in River Falls, WI; Excelsior, MN; Sioux Falls, SD; Santa Barbara, CA; and Blaine, MN. After retiring, he was the interim pastor in several area churches. Pastor Les and his wife, Roz, then returned to Salem Road as attenders, and he was given the honorary title of Pastor Emeritus and served as our visitation pastor for several years. Now fully retired, Pastor Les continues to be a blessing to our church and people.
