Noah Gross

Youth Pastor

Pastor Noah grew up just outside of Atlanta, Georgia, and moved to Minneapolis in 2017 to attend North Central University. Noah met his future wife, Sidney, in the spring of 2018 and they were married in the summer of 2020. He graduated with a degree in pastoral studies in the spring of 2021 and they moved to Willmar to follow God’s call. Noah is a fourth-generation Assemblies of God pastor who desires for every student to understand their purpose, discover their calling, and accomplish their assignments in a life that is much more like a marathon than a sprint. Noah loves spending time with Sidney and their two dogs (Bogey and Rookie), golfing with his buddies, cheering on the Minnesota Twins and Pittsburg Steelers, and beating Pastor Kaleb in just about anything.

Fun Fact: Pastor Noah says, “Pastor Kaleb does NOT destroy me in foosball.”

Pastor Noah’s One-Minute Witness:

“Growing up as a pastor’s kid, I was involved in every area of the church. From going to both services to serving in any and every capacity, church was a high priority. I loved it and loved doing it alongside my parents and siblings. However, as I got older, I started to learn more about God’s love and His desire to know me. It was at this moment that I began to realize I had been living off my parents’ faith and not truly making the decision for myself. My parents being believers doesn’t make me a believer. Their faith won’t save me. It may give me a great head start and added support along my journey but it has to be my decision. Understanding this revelation was profound in my life. All of a sudden, I began to hear God speak, see Him move, and feel His presence. God is acquainted with our pain, cognoscente of our worries, and is equipped to care for our every need. He only asks for one thing from us, and that is our heart. God wants your heart and only you can decide to give it to Him or not.”
