Kris Dernier, Family Minister

Kris (Johnson) Dernier has served as Glyndon Lutheran’s Family Minister since July 2007.  Many churches have a youth and family director and the emphasis is only on the youth.  As family minister, Kris focuses on the whole family, seeing faith development and nurturing as a life-long process.  Family, as defined by GLC, is the entire congregation—not just married couples with children, but family in the broadest sense of the word: all people.

Kris grew up in Detroit Lakes, MN, attended Lutheran Bible Institute (now Trinity Lutheran College) in Everett, WA.  Kris earned her Masters of Arts in Educational Leadership and Congregational Care, Faith and Health at Luther Seminary, graduating in 2006.  Kris is a fan of Jesus, music and coffee (especially pumpkin spice lattes) and is passionate about Haiti.
