Sonja’s passion is to lead others with contagious enthusiasm that creates community and encourages and equips others to follow Jesus. She does this through relational leadership, facilitative teaching, time in God’s Word and in prayer, and in her practices as a lifelong learner. Sonja currently serves as associate pastor in the WHY Church, Elk River, MN, as well as adjunct teacher and speaker.
Sonja and her husband live on one of the 10,000 lakes in Minnesota. They enjoy time outdoors, travel, music and good books. Their greatest joy, next to their relationship with Jesus, is their children and grandchildren.
