Meet Our Staff
I’ve been at Fjeldberg for almost four years and have been in ministry for fourteen years. My wife Kristi and I have three adult sons and three exciting grandchildren. Fjeldberg is a wonderful church home for us. You can get to know everyone on a first-name basis and yet it’s big enough to have a great variety of activities. I like connecting with others through our music ministries, Confirmation ministry, our servant work, and fellowship times on Sunday and Wednesday.
Parish Secretary | Director, Handbell Choir
I have been Parish Secretary since December 2014 and love my job working with the wonderful Fjeldberg Church family. My experience all comes from secretarial and administrative work including 34 years with the Dept. of Mathematics at Iowa State University. I am recently widowed after 49 years of marriage. I have three adult married children and six amazing grandchildren. My hobbies include, going to sporting events for my grandchildren, reading, crocheting, flower gardening, music, and preparing for JOYFUL Bells, the Fjeldberg Handbell Choir.
Organist and Musician
I am the church organist and pianist for Fjeldberg. I am a freshman in college and recently moved from Wisconsin to Iowa to attend Drake University. I have been playing piano for 13 years, organ for 6 years, and I have experience playing at churches for 4 years as well. I am excited to be here and to get to know everyone!
Since 1997 I’ve participated in various activities at Fjeldberg. The most fulfilling has been as the vocal music director. The adult choir, Heaven Inspired Singing (H.I.S.) Choir, is awesome & inspiring. The Children’s Choir is energetic & refreshing. Our amazing faith family is supportive & encouraging! I’m honored & humbled by the blessings I've received through Fjeldberg’s music program. If you feel the call to do something more, give H.I.S. Choir a try, Wednesday evenings. I believe everyone can sing! Together we will share God's love through music!
Director of Youth and Family Ministry
I bring experience as a Sunday school teacher, Sunday school superintendent, high school youth ministry leader, Confirmation leader, Stephen Minister, and past President of the SE Iowa Women of the ELCA. Professionally, I am a Registered Respiratory Therapist with twelve years of experience. I also worked as receptionist to the President of Wartburg Seminary. I enjoy quilting, reading, being outdoors, and spending time with grandchildren.
