Introducing Kim Haggen

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


I am the new part-time office administrator and shared ministry coordinator. I get to greet people, answer the phone, recruit and train volunteers, and try to learn whatever I can from Sherilyn. I am excited to have the opportunity to connect people and their gifts with ministries and service opportunities!

My previous position was with another ELCA church in Rockford, MN, where I had many of the same responsibilities that I will be performing here. In addition, I was very fortunate to be the coordinator for NourishingHOPE, a food ministry that serves about 2000 people each month. I have a passion for working with people and a passion for food ministry.

Part of the reason I love church work is because of my time as a homemaker and stay-at-home mom. I have five children, ranging in age from 23-33. As a mother, I felt the importance of my work and such a clear sense of purpose. When I was ready to get back out into the workforce I wanted work that would also have meaning and purpose. I have found serving God and my community fulfills that need and gives me wonderful opportunities for connection.

When I am not working I love to spend time with my family, playing in nature, or making music. I see God’s hand all around me when I am hiking or kayaking. Random fact about me? We had a family band while the kids were growing up and played many church groups, weddings, funerals, and a historical site. We played bluegrass/old-timey gospel music, like from the movie, Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?

I also enjoy spending time with my six grandchildren, reading, singing with the Wright County Chamber Chorus, and gardening.

I can’t wait to meet each of you and to learn the rhythms of the church here at Zion!
