Pastor Kristin Engstrom
Kristin serves as Country Coordinator for the new Young Adults in Global Ministry (YAGM) program in Senegal. She is called to walk with ELCA young adults who live and serve for one year there. She forms sustainable relationships with our partner church, the Lutheran Church of Senegal/Lutheran Development Services of Senegal, with whom the YAGMs will participate in their year of service.
“I am excited to establish the new YAGM program in Senegal, a country with an amazing sense of hospitality and a unique relationship between Christians and Muslims. My time living in other cultures and countries when I was younger, as well as serving as a pastoral intern in an international church, shaped and stretched my faith in a God who is always bigger and more mysterious than we can comprehend. I look forward to the ways that our amazing God will continue to inspire and challenge the young adults who come to live and serve alongside our Lutheran brothers and sisters in Senegal.”...Pastor Kristin Engstrom
