Tim Dykstal

Congregational Council President

I live a block away from Pilgrim, and was drawn to this community through the Celtic and Nordic contemplative services, the intriguing sermon titles on the church marquee, and the smiling faces coming out of church Sunday morning. In attendance with me are my wife Carrie Burke and, occasionally, grown sons Henry and Charlie. Recently retired, I spent half a career as a college teacher, and a second half as a auditor/compliance type, most recently for the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources. Now, I pursue my avocations of reading, writing, biking, travel, gardening, and husbandry of all kinds. I hope to deepen my faith in a church community of fellow pilgrims.
