The Rev. Dr. Dennis F. McKee (Pastor, 2015-Present)

Our church has been blessed with a rich tradition of outstanding ministers and strong lay leadership.

Rev. McKee comes to Gaylord with 35 years of experience as an ordained minister. He was born and raised in Marysville, Kansas. He graduated from Phillips University in Enid, Oklahoma with a BA in Psychology and Religion. Following his undergraduate work, he attended Phillips Graduate Seminary graduating with a Masters of Divinity with an emphasis in pastoral care. Dennis was ordained that same year, 1979, through the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).

Having served churches in Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nova Scotia, he moved to Minnesota in 1996. Dennis earned his Doctor of Ministry at United Seminary of the Twin Cities in 2007 with an emphasis in spiritual development. For the past 16 years he has served as Director of Spiritual Care at Friendship Village of Bloomington, a retirement community in Bloomington, MN.

Dennis moved to Gaylord, MN in November 2016 with his partner, Lee Hallstrom who is pastor of Light of Christ Lutheran Church, ELCA. He has one daughter,  Erin Brianna “Bree” who is married to Greg Miller and they have one six year old daughter, Chloe. Bree, Greg, and Chloe live in Eagan, MN. 

In his spare time, knitting, crocheting, sewing, and cake baking keep him entertained. In warmer weather, and the opportunity arising, Dennis enjoys kayaking, canoeing, and wood working, and probably a few things he hasn't yet discovered!
