I grew up in Appleton, WI, where my parents still live. I moved in Minnesota in 1998 to attend St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN. I majored in History and Religion and studied abroad in Cuba and Russia. At St. OIaf I met my wife Beth, we were married shortly after she graduated and have been living in South Minneapolis since. I am a graduate from Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN, and I'm grateful to be called to serve here at Bethlehem.
I love technology and gadgets, sports and any competitive enterprise (as along as I can do it well). You can follow me on Twitter @bmcieslik, call my office any time, or e-mail.
