Missionary 2017 – Krista Landaas


I grew up in Oregon City, Oregon, in a loving Christian home as the oldest

of three children. I cannot remember a time when I did not hear about

God and Jesus’ love for us. I gave my life to Jesus when I was 7 years

old during VBS. Since that time, I have known without a shadow of a

doubt that God is calling me to be a missionary. When I was 15 years old,

I surrendered myself fully to God and the Holy Spirit during Multnomah

Holiness Camp. God used that camp to show me that even though I was

a child of God, I had not given my whole life and desires over to Him. He

showed me that He wanted everything and not just the part I was willing

to give.

I attended Northwest Nazarene University and earned my degree in

music education. I had questioned whether or not it was God’s will for

me to earn this degree because I didn’t see it as getting me any closer to

the mission field. However, throughout my years at NNU and my years of

teaching, He showed me that He had a wonderful plan in mind, even if it

did take a longer route than I would have wished. For the last five years,

I have been an elementary music teacher in the public school system.

God has shown me that He has placed in me a passion for the lost,

hurting, and abused children of this world. Currently it is God’s will that I

show His love, hope, and purpose to the children of the American Indian



2016 – Bible Study Leader – John Praetorius

JRP-COLOR PIC 1 2-25-16

John has deep roots at Red Rock and is no stranger for those who have a long association with the Camp. A third generation pastor,  as a 14 year old he received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at Red Rock under the preaching of his dad who was the camp evangelist. When he was 19, he dedicated his future profession (to be a lawyer) to God at the altar rail at Red Rock. After doing his thing working as an attorney – the bulk of his time spent as a criminal prosecutor – John finally answered the call to ministry God had laid on his heart when he was 9 so that John could now do HIS thing. His passion in ministry is for the spiritually lost to find salvation in Jesus and to then grow into mature followers of Christ who are active in helping God’s Kingdom grow.

John has performed 3 prior stints as Red Rock Bible teacher and served as Vice President for 13 years. In the latter role he led worship in the morning and evening sessions, and also preached the equivalent of a weeks’ worth of camp filling in days evangelists had to arrive late or leave early. Along with his wife Laurie, who served as music leader for ten years, Red Rock made the transition to contemporary worship. He has served as a church and camp evangelist, and had the privilege of preaching the final sermon in the old Tabernacle here at Koronis Ministries.  John also taught the theology course for 125 Lay Pastors at a school in Uganda. During his 21 years as pastor of Grace UMC in St. Cloud, attendance grew by 245% and the church relocated and constructed a new building. John is currently a pastor at Relevant Life Church in St. Cloud, with a ministry emphasis in the area of Spiritual Growth and Discipleship.

Leaving a Legacy: Passing on a Biblical Heritage

During the week of camp the women meet daily to have time of their own to discuss and fellowship, this year they will be discussing what it means to Leave a Legacy.


Sharing our passion for the word of God!  In a day and age when much of the culture isn’t sure if scripture still holds an answer of authority, how can we pass on the love the Lord has for that we find in the pages of the Bible. More people today are “Bible Illiterate” than have ever been in recent history.  Join me as we discuss creative, unique ways to grow in our desires to engage in God’s word and pass on our passion to the next generation.
