Pastors & Staff

Jarred LeBon


By God's grace I was raised in a Christian home.  When I was thirteen years old the Lord opened my eyes to see His holiness and my own sinfulness and need for a Savior.  It was then that I turned from my sin and trusted by faith in the finished work and perfect righteousness of Jesus Christ alone.  I married my wife, Jamie, in 2009 and the Lord has given us four beautiful children–Bethany, Aaron, Jordan, and Ruth. It is a great joy and privilege to serve as Pastor at New Journey Church as we seek to glorify God together.

Tyler Stynsberg

Associate Pastor

I grew up in Roseau, Minnesota.  Through a loving local church family (First Baptist Church of Roseau) I experienced much discipleship from intentional, caring adults who desired to see young people passionately pursuing Christ and maturing in relationship with Him.  I knew I wanted to provide that kind of intentional mentorship in the life of students one day myself.   Feeling called into ministry, I pursued a B.A. degree in Youth Leadership with a minor in Biblical and Theological studies from Providence College in Otterburne, Manitoba.  Currently, I am seeking a MDiv from Bethel Seminary.
God provided many opportunities to share the gospel of Jesus Christ in various youth ministry environments—small town, urban, camp, college, church, and parachurch—before bringing me to New Journey Church in the Fall of 2010.
In 2015, Em became my beautiful wife and partner in ministry.  Our First child, Juniper came into the world in May, 2020.

Steph Laposky

Pastoral Assistant

Ryan and I are both from Pine River, MN and are high school sweethearts. We have two boys, Levi and Koby, and a dog named Diggs (Vizsla).  Currently, we are also in the adoption process and hope to be chosen by a birth mom soon!
Ryan works as an inpatient pharmacist at the hospital in Fosston and I have been a stay-at-home mom since Levi was born in 2015.

We moved to Fosston in August of 2019 for Ryan's new position at the hospital. We attended New Journey our first Sunday and felt so welcomed that we continued to come back and made New Journey Church our home church! We have been blessed by the people and friendships that we have made thus far and we look forward to getting to know all of you better!
