BIG SKY – On Sunday, Sept. 29, at 9:30 a.m., All Saints in Big Sky will welcome the Rev. Rob Nedbalek, pastor of Freedom in Christ Prison Congregation at the Montana State Prison in Deer Lodge.
Pastor Nedbalek has a background in retail and wholesale business, automotive and motorcycle mechanics and myriad of other jobs. He ultimately went to Wartburg Theological Seminary, seeking a master of divinity degree and ordination to the ministry of Word and Sacrament. Subsequently, he served as pastor of rural, multi-point parishes in Montana, as well as North and South Dakota before returning to Montana with his family.
While at the seminary, Nedbalek became acquainted with prison congregations of America and was encouraged to consider making himself available for call to prison ministry.
