We are delighted to welcome Lisa Janke and Luke Hollander to Shalom Hill Farm as our new Executive Directors. Lisa, Luke and their daughter Adeline will be making their move to the farm from Winnipeg, Canada at the end of October. They bring with them a great deal of excitement and energy for the ministry of Shalom Hill Farm and look forward to putting their education and experience to use in such a rare and important setting.
“We first experienced Shalom Hill Farm as students of Luther Seminary. We participated in an intensive course held at the farm and were impressed by the beauty of the place and the unique hospitality we received. Our time at the farm and tours of the local area gave us a taste of rural life and ministry, and deepened our desire to live more harmoniously with all creation.
We are thrilled to begin at Shalom Hill Farm and to meet the many people who support, learn from, and find renewal in this place.”
I was Lisa’s pastor from 2004-2009. I appreciate Lisa’s gift of insightful , imaginative, creative and courageous ministry which I am sure will benefit Shalom Hill Farm. Also, I am a Windom High School graduate, Class of 1961.
Pastor Lanny, thank you for these kind words of support! I was able to visit your high school again a couple weeks ago – it is now a hub for all kinds of incredible community activities and is called ‘The BARC’ – Business Arts & Recreation Center.
