Pastor Lloyd Quanbeck
Pastor Lloyd is a native of McVille, ND, and grew up as a farm kid, and the second of six children. He is thankful for the Godly heritage passed on to him from parents, grandparents and great-grandparents, who were active in their local Free Lutheran congregation, and also had a living personal faith in Jesus Christ.
He is a graduate of the Association Free Lutheran Bible School (1981), Moorhead State University (1985), and Free Lutheran Theological Seminary (1990). He has served as Pastor of Free Lutheran congregations in Northome & Mizpah, MN (1990-1996), Minot, ND (1996-2009), Ulen, MN (2009-2015) and at Maranatha Free Lutheran in Glyndon, MN (2009-Present). He also currently serves on the Board of Trustees for AFLC Schools, Plymouth, MN.
He and his wife, Jean, are the parents of seven children, and grandparents to five grandkids. His hobbies include gardening, repurposing an old granary, and trying to keep all of the family cars running.
