Our Team

Executive Pastor

Katie Henslin


Katie loves serving as the Executive Pastor at The Community Co. She uses her strengths of connectedness and energy to champion our Staff Values and to keep a finger on the pulse of staff morale and engagement. She works closely with our Board of Directors and Leadership Team to lead the ministry staff as they carry out the day-to-day ministries of the church. Katie grew up in Apple Valley and graduated from Bethel University. Katie has been with The Community Co since it's very beginning in 2000. Outside of The Community Co Katie loves spending time with her husband Pete and their three children--Maja, Carter, and Ruby. Their time together usually always consists of skis (whether it be snow or water) sunshine, yummy food, friends and the best family.

David loves serving as the Youth Director at The Community Co. Born and raised in the Forest Lake area, he has grown up loving Jesus and being passionate about our community. He went to Bethel University and it was there he grew in passion for the gospel and for teenagers to come to know Christ. Now David impacts our teenagers each week for the Lord. His vision is to engage students where they are at, encourage them in the gifts God has given them, and to experience Jesus in everything we do! David can usually be seen in a beanie hat and lulu shorts, watching the latest football game, playing on his guitar, and snacking on all things chick-fil-a.

She provides leadership and direction to her growing volunteer staff. Carly has a passion to provide a safe, love filled environment for elementary kids of all ages to experience the love of Jesus through purpose, community and a TON of fun! Carly grew up in the Madison, Wisconsin area, so if you are a Packer's fan you are going to get along great! She graduated from St.Olaf in 2020 and is currently attending Bethel Seminary. In her free time she loves to travel, cook, play tennis, and turn everything into a competition! If need be, iced coffee can be used as bribery!

Early Childhood Director

Jolene Organ

Jolene serves as the Early Childhood Director for The Community Co. She naturally builds community by investing in volunteers to create fun, safe and inviting environments for our families. Jolene has a passion for helping our littlest ones have fun while learning more about who Jesus is and how much He loves and cares for them! Her mission is to partner with parents to train up the next generation of fully devoted followers of Christ. Outside of The Community Co, you will always find Jolene surrounded by her family, most times with a camera in hand! Her time is best spent cooking amazing meals with her husband Troy and enjoying times with their three kids Anna, Tommy and Allie.

Worship Director

Chad Goehring


Chad is the Worship Director at The Community Co. He leads the Worship team in dreaming, creating and executing our weekend worship experiences. It is his desire to help create environments where people can take next steps in their journey with Christ. Chad's favorite thing to do is enjoy and create delicious cuisine, scream...I mean cheer his favorite UFC fighter on, golf, coach basketball as well as discover and create new music. His wife, Heidi, and their 4 children (Ayda, Judah, RaeAnn and Levi) can often be found rocking out at a concert or on lacrosse field.

Production Director

Luke Coll

Luke Coll

Luke is the Sound & Lighting Director at The Community Co. He has a passion for the organization, structure, and upkeep of the technical systems that pertain to audio, video and lighting systems. Listeners beware, earplugs may be needed when Luke is on the soundboard as he likes it loud...maybe that is because he is a dad to 5 awesome kiddos (Zach, Jaina, Gabe, Aaron, and Ben), so noise and fun seem to follow him around! Luke is from a small town in Oregon and landed at the University of Northwestern in St.Paul, where he graduated with a degree in Broadcasting. He is married to Sara, and in his free time, you will find him rocking out to his favorite tunes or cheering on the Green Bay Packers...which we refuse to discuss!

Financial Administrator

Lynn Brune


Lynn is the Financial Administrator at The Community Co. At The Community Co she loves seeing individuals grab a hold of all God has for them. She is always encouraged seeing God shows up through The Community Co's generosity in their giving. She doesn’t hold back when it comes to the kingdom and carries her passion and excitement for prayer, faith and generosity into every day. She and her husband Denny cherish their time with family, caring for their various farm animals and cultivating their garden. Their grown children Becky, Jason and Chad bring them great happiness; however her bunches of grandchildren fill her heart with the most joy.
