Lisa Engelken

“Life is all about Plan B.”  This is Lisa Engelken’s life motto.  When you think have everything planned, organized, and ready to go-God call’s us elsewhere.  Lisa is the mother of four beautiful children and has hosted three courageous daughters from Germany and Brazil.  Her life is wonderfully crazy.   In the midst of the chaos of raising children Lisa was called into ministry to help share story the people of God’s faithful stories- not to just children but to their families.

Lisa Engelken is excited to serve as Coordinator of Children Worship & Wonder at Disciples Home Missions. She has been a trainer in Children Worship & Wonder for 16 years.  Children Worship & Wonder is a Montessori-based worship with children.  She serves on a team with 20 other trainers. In July 2015 Lisa became a trainer to train more trainers.

Lisa is a commissioned minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) serving in the Greater Kansas City Region. In 2003 Lisa was called into ministry through the New Church Ministry and Dick Hamm’s 2020 Vision:  2000 new churches 2000 new ways.  Lisa combined her passion for Children and Family ministry with the new church initiatives and she has been leading families to explore their faith together through the house church model and intergenerational worships for several years.
