Pastor Laura is a 2015 graduate of Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN. She is originally from Minnesota, growing up in the Twin Cities area. Laura comes from a small family, having one older brother. Growing up Laura was an athlete playing basketball and track and field. She attended St. Cloud State University majoring in English and was a peer minister for Lutheran Campus Ministry at her college church.
She has been a Kansas resident since 2013. Laura is married to Levi and they have one daughter, Elliana. Laura loves spending time with her family, whether at family nights or over Facetime with her family in Minnesota. She enjoys kickboxing, reading, hanging out with her daughter, and taking motorcycle rides with Levi.
In her call to serve as pastor one of the grounding Bible verses of her ministry is from 1 John 4:10-12: “In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. Beloved, since God loved us so much, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God lives in us, and his love is perfected in us.”
She is excited to be here at ALC and is looking forward to what the Holy Spirit is up to in this community.
