Rev. Inga Oyan Longbrake
Pastor Inga came to serve at St. Mark's in 2008. She is a South Dakota native who grew up in a small Lutheran church and received her Master of Divinity from the Iliff School of Theology in Denver. She also spent a little time at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, IA, to complete her "Lutheran year" of study before taking her first call at Lutheran Church of Hope in Broomfield, CO. St. Mark's is her second call in parish ministry. She loves serving in this Aurora neighborhood and is passionate about the ministry opportunities here. Pastor Inga and her husband Wil have a little girl named Lucy and a dog named Charlie Brown (yes, unintentionally starting a Peanuts gang of their very own).

Kinna Nordstrom, Director of Youth & Family Ministries
Kinna began with us at St. Mark's in July of 2014, as a part of a partnership with our neighbors at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church. She is now three-quarters time at St. Mark's and one-quarter time with other+wise, a new non-profit focused on bringing youth from around the country to our neighborhood to have cross-cultural experiences based in relationship and learning.
Kinna works with youth and families on faith formation - inside the home and out. Kinna completed her Master's Degree in Youth & Family Ministry at Luther Seminary in May of 2014. Before that, she called Arizona home for most of her life. We are very fortunate to have her and her gifts in our community of faith!

Betty Falk, Choir Director
Betty has been a part of St. Mark's most of her life, and for the last several years she has served as the Director of our Chancel Choir. Music is her passion, and that comes through in the music ministry she leads at St. Mark's. Beyond choir direction, Betty coordinates all our special music for those times of the year when the choir is not singing for worship. She encourages all members of our faith community to share their musical gifts however they can.
Rose Kvern, Organist & Music Minister
Rose has served St. Mark's as organist for many years, and her tremendous gifts enhance and support our worship every week. She also accompanies the St. Mark's Chancel Choir and plays for our weddings, funerals, and other occasional services. Her extensive knowledge of organ and hymnody is truly a gift to our community.
