Faith Ministry Stories

Find your ministry

Posted by Deacon Nina Joygaard on

I have only been at Faith Lutheran for two weeks and have received such a gracious welcome!  Here’s a chance to learn a bit more about me.  I am an ELCA Minister of Word and Service (or deacon) and have served in various ministries for the last 15 years in South Dakota, South Africa, and Minnesota.  I came to Minnesota to attend Luther Seminary in Saint Paul and ending up staying here.  I have an amazing husband, Rory – a quirky dog, Marty – and a love for people and relationships.  I enjoy travel, hiking, biking, yoga and spending time with family & friends.  I am learning to love cooking, gardening, and canning.

I feel so blessed to be part of this community and walk with the people of Faith.  I am the Adult Ministry Coordinator and am excited to connect with adults and help adults connect in this community of faith.     I am passionate about fostering community, teaching and practicing spirituality/prayer in a variety of ways, serving our neighbors, and vocation (Who has God created you to be for the world?).  I want to walk with you, as you find your ministry.

When we meet – tell me how you’re connected and what your ministry is.  I’m eager to get to know you and learn about your passions and callings to serve God in the world.  And, if you have an idea for a group, and service project, mission, or way to serve that we’re not doing – please tell me that too!

 Happy Easter!
