David J. EngmanPastor at Breakthrough Minneapolis, Founding Pastor, President & CEO of Breakthrough Ministries
In 2006, Pastor David left a career in business to pursue a call into full-time ministry. He began on the streets of the Twin Cities, meeting the hurting where they were- under bridges, in parks, near shelters. His passion for bringing the lost into a saving relationship with Jesus can be seen in the growing family of programs that today make up Breakthrough Ministries.  David continues to be a vital part of Breakthrough Minneapolis every week in addition to overseeing Breakthrough Ministries.
