About our Youth Pastor

Youth Pastor Samuel Bolt and his wife Jerica love serving the church, and they are very excited to be able to serve the youth and the church in this role!

Samuel began serving at Delano Evangelical Free Church in September 2021. He earned his associate’s degree in biblical and theological studies at Boyce College in Louisville, Kentucky, where he is nearing completion of his bachelor’s degree in the same major.

Samuel grew up in Milaca, MN, where he met his wife Jerica. They were married in January 2021. They both love sports, especially basketball and football. They spend their free time outdoors running, hiking, and biking.  Samuel especially enjoys hunting, fishing, or doing anything that will get him in the woods.

Worship Ministry

At DEFC we love to worship through music, and it's an important part of our Sunday morning worship time! Our desire is to offer God-focused, corporate worship that incorporates creativity and helps usher us into God's presence. Our prayer and hope is that you can feel the freedom to worship in a setting that is God-honoring and reflected in our actions. As God looks upon the heart, our end goal is not a perfect performance, but simply worship of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
