Ellefson learning to become a Pastor

Dave Ellefson is an online student in the Specific Ministry Program at Concordia Seminary operated by the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.

More than 100 students are enrolled in the distance learning program, director David Wollenburg said. The program is open only to those who have been sponsored by someone already working in the ministry.

"I came from a good family, not a broken home," said Ellefson, 47. "That became a model for me, and I saw church at center of it."

Future Pastor Ellefson can not only bake you some mean cookies and play some wicked bass, but can now turn a nice twist on the once blasphemous Megadeth and rock out for God at the church near you.
