Dear Friends in Christ,
Thank you for your interest in Faith Lutheran Church.
I was born and raised in Oconto, WI but my family moved to Minnesota in 2005 and stayed for 16 years. So, it’s good to be home.
I come to ministry with life experience. And I count those life experiences as a blessing. Without them, I wouldn’t be who I am, who God needs me to be. I believe that God has led me here to continue this faith journey with you. I often tell people that I preach from the pews. I am no different than anyone else. I’ve had struggles, I know love in my life, I’ve experienced deep heartache, and incredible joy. I wear my heart on my sleeve because I don’t know any other way to exist. I strive to live out my baptismal promises.
We are all made in God’s image. I truly believe that we will never encounter another person that God does not love. Social justice is important to me in many ways. I am passionate about loving our neighbors – no matter who they are. I am truly committed to walking alongside you all in our shared faith journey.
My favorite Bible verse is Colossians 2:6-7. St Paul speaks of the fullness of a life lived in Christ. “6As therefore you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so live in him, 7rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” We can do this together. We have the roots, we can lean on each other, together we will learn and grow, and this will lead to joy and thanksgiving.
Stop in and see me some time.
