Youth Speaker: Dallas Rostad
Rev. Dallas Rostad has been involved in ministry for over 21 years. He volunteered in non-denominational churches and then officially served as a youth pastor at a Nazarene church where he met his wife, Genevieve. Dallas and Genevieve were called into the mission field and joined Youth With A Mission (YWAM) for over six years. They were based out of Colorado Springs, CO, but spent much of their time traveling, leading short-term mission teams from all over the US and other countries to places that had the least access to the Gospel. Some of the highlights of their time in YWAM include trips to China, Egypt, Afghanistan, India, Ghana, and Tibet.
In 2007, they moved back to their hometown of Fergus Falls to continue to mobilize and raise up more mission workers, while working part time and continuing to stay involved with various ministries. Dallas accepted a postion at Grace United Methodist Church in 2010 and served there as a Local Licensed Pastor up until October of 2018. Then in April of 2019 Dallas took on an Associate Pastor position at Hilltop Celebration church where he continues to work with youth and young adults full time. Dallas has a passion for Jesus and a strong dedication to see young people walk out their faith in Christ.
Dallas also enjoys movies, the New York Yankees, and spending time with his family, which includes his wife, Genevieve, and children, India (8), Mylo (6), Nova (3) and Riah (1).
