Good Shepherd Lutheran Church

A table of hospitality and service, set for all people, as we walk together in the hope of Christ. 

Reverend Nicole Martin

 Pastor Redeveloper
 
As a Graduate of Luther Seminary, my journey to this call has been in the making since the day the waters of baptism rushed over my face.  The journey of life has led to many experiences that make me so incredibly thankful for the grace and mercy of God. 

Beyond the experiences of my youth as an Army dependent, I am also a mom, and a wife of a U.S. Retired Navy Seabee.  I have had several careers and it is with the gift of sight, I can see how each of the endeavors has lead me to be right where I am, serving the good people of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and West Prairie Lutheran Church.  For this I say, "Thanks be to God."

Something unique about myself.  Not only do I have a great love for God, but i have a great love for the gift of joy.  One way I choose to let joy fill my life is as a Laughter Yoga instructor.  Through Laughter Yoga I am able to offer a specialized form of ministry to the community, creating space for healing and wholeness in the midst of everyday stressors.
