Grace and Peace!

I am Nicole Hanson-Lynn, a student at Luther Seminary and new intern at Christ the King!  This past year, I have had the opportunity to get to know some of the congregation through various courses, and I am excited to get to know you all more over this next year.

I grew up in Kasson, MN with one sister, one brother, and one German shepherd.  As a child, I participated in most of the youth activities at my church, and when I was in high school I helped teach Sunday school, Vacation Bible School, and confirmation.  I also enjoyed attending several different summer camps over the years, and I am very fond of camping ministry.

After high school, I attended Wartburg College in Waverly, IA.  There I majored in religion and minored in writing. I loved learning how to read Greek and Hebrew, and I spent one semester in Denver working in a Hispanic church.  While I was at Wartburg, I met my husband, Anthony, who is now a band director in Victor, IA. I also worked as a camp counselor at Outlaw and Atlantic Mountain Ranches, Lutheran camps in Custer, SD during two summers.  My favorite was the more rustic sites (especially one with no electricity or running water!)

Currently, I am in the fourth year of my studies at Luther.  I have especially enjoyed the Bible classes. In my free time, I enjoy reading, knitting, and learning new languages.  

I want to thank you for this opportunity to grow and learn from you during this internship period.  I am excited to see where the Spirit leads during this time.
