I'm Pastor Katie Kringstad

Hello!  My name is Katie Kringstad and I am the pastor at Norman Davenport Lutheran Parish. I graduated from Luther Seminary in St. Paul June of 2021.


I grew up in Fargo, ND attending First Lutheran Church. I graduated from Oak Grove High School class of 2002. I have a bachelors degree in nursing and have served in many different areas of nursing including child psychiatry, family medicine, information technology and parish nursing. I started working at First Lutheran Church Fargo in 2015 at their Parish Nurse. I then became their Director of Children’s Ministry in 2017 until I began my seminary journey.


I came to Norman Davenport Lutheran Parish in order to gain some rural experience in ministry and fell in love. The people and community of Norman Davenport Lutheran Parish are some of the best people you will ever meet. They are truly a church family and love and care for one another.


Our family has been so blessed by being a part of this wonderful parish and we are so excited for what the future holds here. I live in Kindred with my husband Chris and our three daughters Sydney, Christina and Claire.  I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to the lake, refurbishing furniture, and any other craft project.


I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to serve Norman Davenport Lutheran Parish!

Thank you and God bless,

Pastor Katie Kringstad
