Pastor David Ingqvist was the pastor of the Lake Wobegon Lutheran Church from ca. 1980 to 2010.
In the summer of 2010, after 30 years in Lake Wobegon, Pastor Ingqvist left the parish.
A Lutheran Bishop was lost when he came across a Lutheran Church (Lake Wobegon Lutheran) in his district that he did not know about. When the Bishop came into Lake Wobegon Lutheran, he asked Pastor Ingvist how long he had been there. Pastor Ingvist told him that he had been there for thirty years. The Bishop told Pastor Ingvist that the Synod required pastors to not stay with one church for too long following an incident with Unity Lutheran Church. Pastor Ingvist then took a job as the pastor at the Mall of North America. He was temporarily replaced by interim pastor Barbara Ham and was permanently replaced by Pastor Liz.
