New Program Director Michelle Heinrich Begins 12/1/17

Oregon, IL, November 30, 2017 – Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Center (LOMC) welcomes new Program Director Michelle Heinrich effective Friday, December 1, 2017.

Michelle is a graduate of Carthage College with a degree in Business Administration. She is also certified as a Youth and Family Director through the Center for Youth Ministries of Wartburg Theological Seminary. She has been employed as the Youth and Family Coordinator at Faith Lutheran Church in Rochelle for 10 years. Residing in Rochelle, she is the mother of three teenage children.

Michelle enjoys the outdoor life, especially running, biking, hiking and camping. She also has a passion in teaching kids of all ages about God’s love for them. “I am very excited to be able to continue my passion of teaching and leading kids and adults in an outdoor setting at LOMC. To be out in God’s beautiful creation everyday will be inspiring to me. I am truly on a spiritual journey and look forward to all the people I will meet and serve along the way!”

Michelle’s favorite Bible verse is from Romans 12:11-13: Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality.

“I will refer to these words often as I continue to do God’s work with my hands at LOMC!”
