Kayla Monson
Pastoral Staff
Associate Pastor



Pastor Kayla had the opportunity to grow up in a variety of communities and faith communities in southwest MN. After graduating from Paynesville High School in 2006, Kayla attended Gustavus Adolphus College in St.Peter, MN and graduated in 2010 with a B.A. in Religion. Following her graduation from Gustavus, Kayla started her studies at Luther Seminary in St.Paul, MN. As a recent graduate (May 2014) Kayla entered the call process. Kayla and her husband Garrett Monson were excited to see where God would lead. Pastor Kayla and Garrett are excited to be joining Oak Knoll in God’s mission to love and bless this world and they continue to be amazed at the many ways God is at work in and through this faith community, and the world.

Pastor Kayla and her husband Garrett enjoy spending time with their golden retriever puppy Sadie, spending time outdoors and on the lake, running, reading, and being with family and friends.

One of her favorite Bible verses is Psalm 139:1,13-14 “You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
