Dena grew up in the Twin Cities and with her husband John, they have been making Columbia Heights their home community since 2015. In 2018 they were called to serve in Saint Anthony at Elmwood Church. She spends most of her days with their two young children, who always keep her on her toes. You will often find all three of them playing, laughing, reading, and exploring. As a family they enjoy the outdoors, their cat Kirby, and making people around them a part of their everyday lives. Dena enjoys having a supportive role and is glad to use her administrative skills and attention to detail to serve as the Digital Communications Administrator. She is grateful to serve the district of churches through this role and with this amazing team of people who love and serve Christ.
