Rev. Ali Tranvik
Originally from Minneapolis, Ali attended Duke Divinity School and later served as Lutheran Campus Pastor at Duke. Her call to ministry was informed and deepened community organizing in Durham, NC, working at La Casa del Migrante in Tijuana, Mexico, and studying the Holocaust as part of the Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics in Berlin. Ali is passionate about building relationships between the church and its neighborhood, gathering to break bread with neighbors, and writing at the intersection of faith and public life. In her free time, she enjoys camping, walking the lakes, and trying to locate the best tacos in town. Pastor Ali joined Cross of Glory in 2020, and is grateful to be part of the COG and Brooklyn Center communities. She'd love to hear from you at
