Pastor Dawn Quame joined the staff at Faith Lutheran Church, Avoca, and Christ Lutheran Church, Slayton, as of Friday, March 1st. She moved into the parsonage in Avoca during the middle of February. She lives there with her cockapoo, Chloe.

Pastor Quame was born and raised in Mankato, MN. She graduated from Mankato East High School and then attended Winona State University. She graduated from college with a degree in Therapeutic Recreation.

During the years of 1984 to 1992, Pastor Quame worked as an activity director at nursing homes within the state of Minnesota.

“After that I went into a program for youth ministry called Tentmakers. I went to the Twin Cities for an intensive seven weeks of training,” Pastor Quame stated.

The Tentmakers Program helps to provide Christ-centered leadership training and coaching for students and adults in families, classrooms, churches and communities who impact the lives of young people.

During 2001 to 2005, Pastor Quame worked as a youth director at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Lakeville, MN. “My pastor asked what I saw in my future and told me that he felt that I could be a pastor. Others had told me that, also. I actually sensed that in myself as I love congregational ministry. It is the one place that you can work with the whole family from the very young to the adults,” Pastor Quame stated To read the rest of this article - pick up a copy of this weeks Fulda Free Press or subscribe to our eedition at http://eedition.fuldafreepress.net
