Featured Missionary: Preston and Karen Hoiseth

December 07, 2014 at 9:28 AM

Preston Hoiseth grew up in northern Minnesota. After graduating from high school, he attended Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City. After graduation, he spent four years on staff at a church in Florida. But his love for northern Minnesota, and the people there, drew him home. In February 2012, he and his wife Karen packed up their belongings and moved to Bemidji to establish the Northwoods Baptist Church.

The church recently had its first missions conference, with guest missionaries from several states and other countries. Even as a small church, they’ve pledged to give nearly $10,000 in the coming year to world missions. Northwoods is looking forward to the day when it is sending out missionaries of its own.
