Hailing from Bozeman, Montana, Alan Newbold serves as a pastor for public campus ministry in the Montana Conference.  He gets to spend his days finding ways to come alongside young adults - many, students at Montana State University - at a key transitional point in their lives.  Alan thrives on a long hike, paddle boarding, traveling, making music and a good connection in conversation.  Though adventures in the mountains are great, getting the chance to step away from the snow for a few days to be a part of the convention is a welcome gift and he's excited to be a part of the team leading praise.
