Danebod Lutheran Church in Tyler recently welcomed Gena Maria Koeberl as their new pastor. Pastor Gena’s first Sunday was March 3 and she was installed on March 17.
Her call to Tyler brought her back to southwestern Minnesota, being a native of Renville County.
“I’m originally from Hector,” she said. “I grew up on a farm about 16 miles north of Hector, right on the Kandiyohi/Renville County line. I came from a farm family and I’m the youngest of five and everybody lives in that area, so I’m not too far from home.”
