Men’s Retreat Speaker

We have two speakers this year. Phil Print (left), Senior Pastor of Crossroads Church for 22 years, and his son-in-law, Sten Carlson (right).

philandstenIn addition to pastoring Crossroads Church, Phil is also an adjunct Professor of Preaching at Bethel Seminary. He has been married to his wife Laurel for 33 years. He is not only a father, but a grandfather with 3 grandchildren. In his spare time, Phil loves to catch bass, play racquet sports, drink coffee, and travel to Mexico in January.

Sten has been an assistant pastor at Cedarbrook Church in Menomonie, WI for 1 year. He has been married to Erica for 5 1/2 years. Sten is new dad to Lucy-8 months and counting (fast). Sten’s experience working at Portage Lake Bible Camp for 5+ summers has instilled in him a passion for camping ministry. He understands the value of retreats like this and he is excited to make the most of it. In his spare time he loves to fly fish for trout, play basketball, and make up funny songs to sing to his daughter.

P.S. He’s Phil Print’s son-in-law, so he feels obligated to say “I’m looking forward to speaking with Phil” :)
