About

Influence Church is a life-giving local church that allows people to find their purpose and help them influence their world.

Our goal is to introduce people to God, equip them with the truth of God’s word, and mobilize them to become all God has designed them to be.

Influence Church is a thriving, fun, and real community of ordinary people who love God passionately and want to honor Him with all they have and are.

We are committed to helping build healthy marriages within the community. The stronger the marriages, the stronger the families, the stronger the community.

We inspire generosity and compassion in helping those in need in the community, such as widows and single moms.

We are committed to leading the next generation to impact the world.

Influence Church inspires people to break free from the ordinary and partner with God to influence our world for the better together.

Meet Our Pastors

Pastor Catalin Dima came to know the Lord as a teenager in Communist Romania. He worked as a youth leader there and also helped to plant a number of churches in the villages around the Romanian capital of Bucharest. He immigrated to the United States and married the love of his life, Kelly, in 2004.

Kelly grew up in Minnesota and is a graduate of Bethel College and Seminary. Together, Catalin and Kelly have over 50 years of ministry experience. From a very young age they both have felt a call to help people discover that living for God is the way to live a meaningful life.

Catalin and Kelly live in the Twin Cities with their sons Alec, Manny, and Benjamin.
