The Rev. Doug Mork

Rev. Doug Mork is the lead pastor of Cross of Glory Lutheran Church in Brooklyn Center, MN, a first ring suburb of Minneapolis. With a little nudge from his mentor and friend Paul Wellstone, Doug headed to the Deep South following graduation where he spent six years as an organizer for the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union. He returned to seminary in 1993 while continuing to work on labor organizing campaigns in the summers. Since ordination in 1997, Doug has served three congregations in the Twin Cities area including his current call. He also worked for six years as the Organizing Director of the largest UFCW local in Minnesota. He connected with Kim and the National Interfaith Committee for Worker Justice shortly after seminary and was a founding board member of the Twin Cities Religion and Labor Network. For more than ten years he served as either the faith or labor co-chair of the board and in an interim role as director. He remains active in worker justice struggles with organized labor and its allies. Doug is married and has two daughters in college.
