Our bookkeeper, John Rowekamp, joined the Church of the Resurrection in 2008 when he and his wife Deb moved to Rochester. He grew up on a dairy farm in southeastern Minnesota and worked on dairy farms until he was 36 when he decided to go to college. John earned a BS degree in Accounting from Winona State University in 1989. After graduation from college, John has worked as a staff accountant, accounting manager, controller, internal auditor and finance analyst. He retired from Mayo Clinic in 2018. Prior to working at Mayo Clinic, he was the internal auditor for the Diocese of Winona where he acquired familiarity with the accounting policies and procedures of the of the Catholic Church.
In his spare time, John likes to hike in the Minnesota state parks and has a lifetime senior membership to the national parks which he hopes to use often.
John is excited to work with the wonderful staff at the Church of the Resurrection. He feels very fortunate to be back in the accounting field by helping with the work of our parish.
