Pastor Denise has worked tirelessly during the pandemic to continue the mission of All Saints Lutheran Church (ASLC) leading the way into the digital age. ASLC now offers LIVE streaming worship on YouTube as well as offering a dynamic in person worship style. Pastor Denise has worked with church council to invest in a hospitality culture within the church so ALL feel welcome regardless of personal situation.

Pastor Denise's passion towards families shows in her optimism and commitment towards an array of family counseling ministries such as pre-marriage or the creation of the 'PRAY GROUND"- a kid friendly play area within the worship space. This truly creates a family friendly focus allowing parents to be part of church worship.
