Director of Discipleship & Christian Education

Deb Lenertz

Office Manager

Donna Fisher

Financial Secretary

We come from many different paths to this place at this time. As the body of Christ we are each called to be in ministry, we have opportunities daily to serve from our homes and offices and places of play and recreation. The Spirit Lake United Methodist Church paid staff ministry team is composed of both life long residents of the Iowa Great Lakes and those who are still exploring the area.

We Are Always Looking For Talents

We look forward to sharing ministry with you as Spirit Lake United Methodist Church makes, grows and sends disciples into our broken and hurting world.
