Mike Osterbauer

Hey, my name is Mike Osterbauer & I am on staff serving at Root River as the lead pastor. My wife Krista and I met at North Central University in downtown Minneapolis. After we got married and finished school, we worked at a church in Iowa for five years and then came to Rushford in 2015. We have seven wonderful children and are so thankful for them. Looking forward to getting to know you more!
