Our Leadership

  • Senior Pastor,  TJ Turner

    I'm TJ Turner, senior pastor of Woodbury Community Church. I originally grew up south of Atlanta, Georgia, and met my wife Kerstin in college. I went to seminary at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina, where our daughter was born. After Seminary, God took us north, starting in Massachusetts, where our son was born, and eventually to Minnesota. Our family time is mostly divided between music and hockey, and we're happy to call Woodbury our home. More than that, we're excited to see God work at WCC, bringing the power of the Gospel into our lives and our community.

  • Church Administrator, Connie Edwards

    I’m Connie Edwards. I am honored to be working with WCC as its
    office administrator. My husband and I recently retired from Mayo
    Clinic and moved to Woodbury to be near our 6 grandchildren. In
    my spare time I like to play the piano and quilt. My prayer is to
    help WCC--from behind the scenes--reach many with the Gospel
    of Jesus Christ.
