  Christoph was first diagnosed with thyroid cancer four years ago. He now needs his fourth surgery in as many years. He has had lengthy radiation treatments and suffers from loss of strength in his right arm that will require extended physical therapy.

  Christoph attended Oak Grove Lutheran High School and Concordia College in Moorhead. He and his wife, Taryn, are students at Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia, and he will seek ordination in the ELCA. Christoph is the son of Rev. Peter and Vicki Schmidt of West Fargo.

  This benefit potato bar dinner is partially funded by Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, and funds will go to help Christoph with medical expenses. Donations can be made out to the Christoph Schmidt Benefit at State Bank & Trust or at the dinner on Nov. 28.
