Sheldon Way – Service, Social Justice & Outreach Intern
Sheldon, your friendly neighborhood Canadian, comes to LCM by way of a year in the Holy Land through the ELCA’s Young Adults in Global Mission program. He strives to understand and live out God’s mission of peace, justice, and reconciliation in the world. In addition to LCM, Sheldon works in youth ministry, a blend of holy beauty and chaos. You can find him playing drums on Saturday nights, going to life practice on Sunday mornings, and drinking coffee at all times. In his free time, he enjoys reading theology in hammocks, being consistently disappointed by the Toronto Maple Leafs, and camping in the woods.
Michael Morris – Musician
Michael is a songwriter, record producer, and, more generally, a person who does whatever is necessary to bring honest art into this world of lies. If he has to have a hometown, he wishes it could be Hogsmeade, but he more or less lives in Northfield, MN because it is the closest thing he can find to Hogsmeade within a convenient driving distance of his family and an airport. If not for those last two details he would split his time between Holden Village and Hollywood. He plays in various bands, most often in the indie folk act Dewi Sant, the country and western group Wesley Church & the Fabulous Vanguards, and and the folk rock collective, Valley Fair. He loves analog sounds, Swedish pop music, Leonard Cohen, Falcon Heights MN, Lutheran theology, and he tries to love Jesus, too.
Ben Williams – Intern for Outreach (St. Paul Campus)
Ben has moved back to the Twin Cities from Chicago, where he most recently served as a youth director at a Lutheran Church in Wheaton, Illinois. Ben finished his undergraduate studies at Elmhurst College in Theology and Christian Ministries. During his college years, he spent his summer working in various positions at Lake Wapogasset Lutheran Bible Camp. Currently, he is attending Luther Seminary to earn his Master of Divinity. In his spare time, Ben enjoys being outside hammocking, golfing or biking. When Ben isn’t outside, he is mostly likely fiddling with a guitar or another musical instrument. Ben is excited to get to know a new city and share his passion for ministry with LCM! Feel free to contact him at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
