Rev. Tonnes Pollestad is the new AFLC Director of Development. He and his wife Mary live in Andover, Minnesota. They have two children and four grandchildren.
Tonnes graduated from AFLBS in 1972 and graduated with a Masters of Divinity in 1991 from AFLTS. He served Maranatha Free Lutheran Church in Spring Lake Park, Minnesota for eight years. He was Director of Vision 2004 for four years guiding the first stages of the expansion of the AFLC campus in Plymouth, Minnesota. For nine years Tonnes worked as Regional Field Director for the Bible League International ministry, traveling in more than 10 different states. His primary responsibility was raising funds to meet the annual budget of the Bible League International, through visitation with donors. Tonnes built deep relationships with many as he shared information about areas of ministry and opportunities for prayer and financial giving. He also facilitated avenues for donors to be able to give portions of their estates to Bible League International.
As Director of Development of the AFLC Tonnes will be working with each AFLC director and ministry helping them assess funding opportunities in order to expand the kingdom of God. He will be traveling across the US meeting individuals, churches and church boards connecting them to these opportunities of ministry within the AFLC which God may be directing their hearts to give. Tonnes looks forward to meeting with many as he travels across the United States.
Please be in prayer for this new ministry and for Tonnes and his family in his travels. Tonnes desires that God be kept in the forefront, remembering that God is on the throne with this ongoing work in the expansion of His kingdom. See more “About Giving” - AFLC Development.
