Lisa is a recent recipient of a LWML Oregon District Special Gifts Fund Scholarship.
For more than thirty years God has been preparing Lisa for service as a deaconess. When she was a teen, Lisa told her mother that when she grew up she wanted to sit by peoples hospital beds, hold their hands, and pray with them. God put the desire in her heart, then used the next thirty years to prepare her! Lisa is a pharmacist in the community and full time student in the Master of Arts Deaconess Studies Program (distance program) at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana. As part of her practicum Lisa is the deaconess intern at St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Cornelius. Lisa has three adult children, Maria, Anna, and John and two curious kitties. Visitations and teaching are two of Lisa's favorite means of serving the Body of Christ in love.
