Lisa Holmlund to join staff

After 15 months of searching, the team selected to bring a recommended candidate to the Church Council for the positon of Director of Student Ministry presented Lisa Holmlund to MCC last weekend. Lisa met with just about every available age group and interest level in the church from Thursday evening till Sunday night.
Last Tuesday evening the Chruch Council convened for the primary purpose of discussing the recommendation from the Search Team. The response was overwhelmingly strong to offer this much needed and critical position to Lisa. I sent her an email late Tuesday night with the results. Wednesday morning I flew out early (5:45 am) for a long day of flying to Minneapolis to see our kids and my folks. As we were getting off the plan in Minneapolis, Lisa called me from the island of St. Croix, where she is nannying 9 kids. "Yes" she said! We are ready for the next exciting chapter in the life of MCC! Thanks to all of you who have prayed for us!

Lisa is one of my dearest friends, and you will be blessed personally and as a church to have her on your team. She's the real deal! She's personable, passionate, and oozes her love of God and living life to the fullest in all that she does.

I'm excited for your church to get to know Lisa better. Congrats!

I am so glad for MCC and also, for Lisa! It is always a joy to hear of a fellow seminarian getting a call! Thanks be to God!
