Bjorn Dixon
Pastor - The Why Church
Elk River, MN

Bjorn and Esther Dixon met at Biola University in Los Angeles where Esther was Bjorn’s German tutor. They met every week at a coffee shop where Bjorn paid for the tutoring with coffee. A wedding and three kids later, they can definitely say that those cups of coffee were a good investment! Bjorn and Esther love being part of the WHY Church community as well as the Elk River YMCA.
