About Us

Gethsemane Covenant Church

Gethsemane is a good place to find real people seeking the One True God together. We are enjoying God and glorifying Him as we do life together with Him. We'd love to have you join us.


Pastor Mike Hardesty

I was born 9th of 12 siblings. I served in the US Marine Corps from 1984-1990. As a Marine I met my wife on the Island of Okinawa in 1987 and then Married Darla Jean in June of 1990. I graduated from Columbia Int'l University in 1992 with a BA in Bible and Missions. Then I served as Campus Chaplain of Okinawa Christian School from 1993-1998. In December of 1998 I became pastor of Dora Lake Alliance Church, Northome MN, and served there until 2001 and then transferred to Alliance Community Church in Duluth MN, 2001 to Jan. 2012. I am so thankful to now be serving Gethsemane Covenant Church since September of 2013. I love my family and my church and enjoy hunting, target shooting, fishing and looking forward to Jesus' return.
