About Brenda Ehlers
Rev. Ehlers is Associate Pastor for Children, Youth and Education Ministries at Morrow Church in Maplewood. She has served in children’s ministry since 2003.
Brenda believes that ministry with children, youth and their families requires a brave heart. Brave, because you have to be excited about change. There is no guarantee that what you did so successfully last year will work again. But, the one thing that has always been successful for faith formation is deep, caring relationships between leaders and students.
Brenda’s work as a faith formation leader is to provide the resources and guidance to encourage and nurture these relationships.
