Pastor Lindean was called to serve CtK in 2008, after serving congregations in Kalispell, MT and Phoenix, AZ. She is a proud graduate of the University of Washington (Go Huskies!) and Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN and has continued her studies in the Master of Public Administration program at Montana State University. She and her husband, Pastor Grant, have two elementary-aged daughters. Pastor Lindean is a Girl Scout leader, a board member for Lutheran Campus Ministry and Christikon Lutheran Camp, and a regular panelist on the Gallatin Valley Interfaith Forum. She enjoys travel, reading, baking bread and breaking bread with friends old and new.
Pastor Grant began serving Christ the King in 2008 with Pastor Lindean, after serving congregations in Phoenix, Chicago, and rural Illinois. Grant earned a B.A. in History from California Lutheran University and a Master of Divinity from Luther Seminary. He first realized that he wanted to be a pastor when he worked at church camp for two summers while in college. He enjoys downhill skiing and tent camping with his family, cooking northern Italian cuisine, reading American history, and experiencing the goodness of God’s world in the people he meets both near and far-away.

Nicole Anderson is currently a student at Montana State University (MSU) entering her fifth year of studying music education. She is a Bozeman native and decided to stay in Bozeman to attend college so that she could stay close to her family, friends, and to have the opportunity to join the MSU Spirit of the West Marching Band, which is her favorite activity.
Nicole was born, baptized, and raised in the CtK congregation, attending worship services with her parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. She attended VBS, Service Plunge, weekly youth group, and two ELCA Youth Gatherings during her growing up years and loved them all! Between her college studies and working in the winter as a ski instructor, Nicole is a busy bee who tries to get to church whenever she can!
Nicole’s favorite hymn is “Send Us Out” because of its lively beat and message of going out and growing in community through God. She believes God has called her to find and create community wherever she can by showing kindness and connecting with everyone she meets. She joined the CtK church council to represent the college-age group ensuring they have a voice in the congregation. While Nicole did not get a star word this year, she has hung on to her start word from years past, wisdom. She has been living out wisdom as she strives to learn more at school and in life as a real adult.
We are grateful for Nicole’s ongoing dedication to CtK as she continues to worship, learn and serve.
