Lowell Bakke, in addition to his responsibilities at BGU, he also directs the Mustard Seed Foundation's Theology of Work Grant Program. His search for education took him to cities like Chicago, Boston, and Denver. His 35 years of pastoral leadership took him across the country, as well. Throughout his pastoral career he has attempted to integrate the missional/urban focus of his brother Ray Bakke and the international business calling of his brother Dennis Bakke into the churches he served. His heart and passion are still to help pastors and churches “send” their people to broken places that churches cannot control (like Daniel to Babylon) to do things most pastors could not condone (like Esther running for Miss Persia), while serving creatively enough to transform that context (like Joseph in Egypt) for the glory of God and good of all the people.
