Pastor DJ Thomsen

Rev. Dwain (DJ) Thomsen was called to serve at Christ the King in 2014.  Pastor Thomsen (or simply Pastor DJ) grew up on a small farm outside of Rush City Minnesota.  At the age of 16 DJ began attending church at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Rush City and was instructed in the Lutheran faith and baptized shortly thereafter.  In high school he developed a love for sharing the Good News of Jesus with others.  That desire to share the Gospel moved him to pursue a degree in ministry at Concordia University Wisconsin where he met his wife Josie.   DJ graduated from the St. Louis Seminary in 2010 and previously served for 3 1/2 years as Associate Pastor at Lamb of God Lutheran Church in Flower Mound Texas before accepting the call to Christ the King.

Pastor DJ and Josie have four children; John, Keegan, Camden, and Clover. 

Because they have four busy children, DJ and Josie spend much of their free time being parents, but whenever he gets a chance DJ can either be found working on anything with an engine (he's a bit of a gearhead) or wandering the woods hunting and fishing.  Whenever she gets a moment, Josie enjoys photography, music, and Pinterest adventures.
