Erin Anderson

Hi!  My name is Erin Anderson, and I grew up and lived my whole life in a small town in Wisconsin.  I'm blessed with having been raised in a Christian family where I was faithfully taught about God and His Word.  My whole life I have attended church, Sunday School, Bible Camps and retreats, and even attended Christian school for a while.  While all this was great, my faith really became real to me when I attended the Association Free Lutheran Bible School (AFLBS) in Plymouth, MN, for two years.  During my time there, God showed me what it means to have faith in Him and how He has called each one of us to be a part of His Kingdom.  While I was there, I learned about a ministry called Parish Building which sounded like a great opportunity to put all of what I'd learned into use!  God had a plan, and before I knew it, I was on my way to Colorado to serve this congregation for a year!  I am excited to see what God has in store for this next year!

Hannah White

Hello!  My name is Hannah White.  I grew up in the Seattle area.  I was raised in a Christian family, attended church my whole life, and heard God's Word taught everyday.  At 14, I began to feel the Lord tugging at my heart, and sensed Him calling me to follow Him.  Shortly after this, I made a profession of faith and was baptized.  When I was about 19, my family started attending an AFLC church.  That summer, at bible camp, I heard about the Association Free Lutheran Bible School (AFLBS).  At the time I wasn't sure I wanted to leave home and move to Minneapolis.  God kept working on my heart, and eventually, I decided to go to the Bible school.  I knew I wanted to grow in my faith and believed God was leading me to take this step in order to do that.  The next two years flew by.  I loved living in a solid Christian community.  It was so encouraging to hear God's Word taught every day in class.  While in school, I heard a lot about Home Missions and something called "Parish Building."  I was curious about it from the beginning.  Previously, I had been interested in getting more involved in church ministry, so parish building seemed like a good option for me.  I applied and was accepted into the program.  When I heard I was going to serve in Loveland, CO, a flood of peace washed over me.  I knew this was what God had planned for me.

My favorite Bible passage is Isaiah 40:28-31.  It says: "Have you not known?  Have you not heard?  The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.  He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.  He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.  Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint."
