Pastor Ali Tranvik 

Born and raised in Minnesota, Ali came to
Durham after working as a writer in Minneapolis,
a college access coach in St. Louis, and an English teacher in Ecuador. During her time as a seminarian at Duke Divinity School, she spent a summer living and working in a migrant and refugee shelter on the US-Mexico border, further shaping her call to ministry. She’s passionate about building relationships across Duke and the wider Durham community, and is involved in  DurhamCAN and the Religious Coalition for a Nonviolent Durham. In her free time, you can find her in the Blue Ridge mountains, at a Durham Bulls game, or at La Vaquita, Durham’s
best taco joint, with her partner, Isak.

As a former Duke Lutheran herself, Ali is humbled to serve as Lutheran Campus Pastor, and is excited about the ways she sees God at work in this wonderful community. You can contact her at alexandra.tranvik@duke.edu
