Pastor Fjeld served the Vang Lutheran Church from 1896 – 1899.  He came to Manfred Township from South Dakota. He was married to Hannah Schie. Three children were in this family: Alvin, Erastus, Camilla.  In addition to the church at Manfred he also served the Harvey Lutheran Church.

 

It was noted in the church history of the Harvey church that in March 1900, a meeting was called to take steps toward the building of a church in Harvey, however, the sudden death of their faithful pastor, Rev Fjeld, stopped any further planning at this time.
