Portrait of Lead Berdahl

Leah Berdahl

Master of Divinity
Sioux Falls, SD 

What made you choose LSTC? 

I was drawn to LSTC by the academic opportunities, vibrant welcoming community, and affirming attention to social advocacy.

What people and communities helped you to get here?

I grew up in Sioux Falls, SD where my home church, Spirit of Joy, nurtured me in faith and action. I was then fostered at the St. Olaf College Student Congregation before I left with my B.A. in Religion and Sociology/Anthropology.

What do you hope to learn during your time at LSTC? 

I’m looking forward to learning more about community organizing, ministerial leadership, and parish ministry.
