Director of Congregational Ministry

Email Lisa,

Lisa Rykken Kastler joined the Our Saviour’s staff in August, 2020, thinking she was only staying a few months as an interim worker. After two years, she realized she didn’t want to leave and enjoyed the ministry and culture of Our Saviour’s, so she stayed. Her love for people and Jesus (not in that order) are what defines her. Lisa has spent 25+ years in  congregational ministry in a number of ELCA churches in the Twin Cities. Lisa appreciates her Lutheran heritage and leans into grace throughout her life.
