Rev. Jodi Houge

Rev. Dr. David KimBiography

Pastor at Humble Walk Lutheran Chuch, St. Paul, MN

Jodi Houge was raised by North Dakota potato growers. Incidentally, she likes watching things grow. In 2008, Jodi started Humble Walk Lutheran Church in a coffee shop during her last year of seminary and has been running to catch up with where this community leads her ever since. Humble Walk is filled with people on the last train out of Christianity-who have decided to give it one more go. Being the pastor of this new church plant provides stories of hope every single day. She spends a good deal of time drinking coffee and observing life in the West End of St Paul, MN--where she lives with her husband and 2 offspring. Her friends would describe her as a good eater.


Jesus noticed people the world overlooked and he blessed them. Jesus blessed working class shepherds, women, children, the incarcerated man hanging next to him. What does it look like to notice and bless people around you? One blessing leads to another. Jodi will tell stories of her community noticing and surrounding people with blessings-including banjos, bikes, kilts and bartenders.
