Associate pastor named at Calvary Lutheran
Sara Jensen, who is authoring October's devotional, is serving Calvary Lutheran Church as associate pastor.
Growing up in Red Oak, Iowa, she attained a bachelor's degree in social work from Dana College in Blair, Neb. and a Master of Divinity from Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio.
Her previous calls include Immanuel Lutheran Church in Madison, Neb. and St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Neola, Iowa. This spring, she served as adjunct professor in the religion department at Midland University, Freemont, Neb.
She is married to Erik and they are parents to two children (Anker, 4 and Asta, almost 2). Erik is a high school Spanish teacher and will be looking for opportunities to serve as a substitute teacher.
"I have served two small congregations and am looking forward to the new challenges serving a large congregation will bring," Jensen said. "My areas of focus at Calvary are Family Ministry and Caring and Outreach Ministries."
