Director of Youth & Family Ministry, Deacon

Ingelaurie Lisher grew up and has lived her whole life in the Pacific NW joining the staff as the Director of Youth and Family Ministry in 2000. She has an MA in Children, Youth, and Family Ministry from Luther Seminary and a BA in Communications from Western Washington University.  Ingelaurie was rostered in the ELCA as a Deacon in 2009. She is the chair of the 1st Third of Life Team for the SWWA Synod and is the Region 1 representative for synodical youth ministry with the ELCA–where she works to engage, equip and encourage those who serve in ministry with the 1st Third of Life in congregations and throughout our synod. When she is not in the office or at a youth event, Ingelaurie can be found hanging out with my husband or with family and friends, reading a good book, traveling to warm places–or dreaming about them.
