Meet your Leadership Team

We are here for you!

Ned Lenhart


God is good, all the time! Hi there, I'm Ned Lenhart and I have this huge privilege of shepherding the Jesus followers here at Living Water Church. My beautiful wife is Jill,  and together we have three lovely daughters, Grace, Clara and Thea and we can't forget my trusty hunting partner named Sally. 

When I was young, I earned money for college by commercial fishing in Alaska! I love new experiences and places, and my family and I recently traveled to Australia together while I was on Sabbatical. What a gorgeous place! You can follow my trip on our Living Water Instagram. 

Living Water is so special to me - It’s a blessing to belong to a church family where everyone is welcome, the Spirit of Jesus is alive, and the passion is so great for serving others through Christ. 

When I'm not working on my pastoral duties, I love spending time with my family, in nature and with my dogs. Every morning, I strap on head lamps and take the dogs for an hour long trip through the woods. There's no better place to clear your mind and have a heart to heart with God.

If I could leave you with one word as you face the days ahead, it would be trust. No matter what life hands us, we can trust that God will see us through it. You are welcome here - and I hope you and your family join us and become one of our family!

Janine Hansen

Ruby's Closet Coordinator

Hello and welcome to Living Water!  My name is Janine Hansen.  It is my honor to serve this loving Christ community as the coordinator of Ruby's Closet and a joyful member of the worship team.

Mitch (my high school sweetheart) and I have been married for almost 40 years and our greatest masterpiece is our family!  Our 4 children, Taurean, Auhston, Keytun and Taylor have given us 7 of the most amazing grandchildren: Kaden, Klair, Brylee, Jema, Cooper, Cienna and Oaklynn.  In my "spare" time, I like to sing, watch movies, travel and ride motorcycles, snowmobiles and ATV's.  My most cherished moments are spent with our kids, grandkids, family and friends!

Living Water is such a unique gift from God!  I am one of the passionate women who formed this loving, understanding and serving Body of Christ!  We are not just your "ordinary" church...this family of caring believers opens its heart to serve and refresh you and you are always welcome here!

When thinking of our Lord's abundant love for us, the word that comes to mind is enough.  He has always given us "enough" to sustain us through whatever life throws our way.  Please join us and know that "His Grace is Enough"!!

Michelle Wilson

CORE/ EPIC Youth Ministry Leader

Hi! I'm Michelle, one of the Youth Ministry Leaders here at Living Water. I'm part of the CORE (middle school) and EPIC (high school) ministry and absolutely love leading your kids in a richer life with Jesus!

I live in Cameron, with my husband Trevor and my kids, Carli, Parker, Lainey and Archer the therapy dog. I'm a full time teacher of high risk kids at the North Star Academy, and love to do some photography in my spare time. Both my husband and I have large extended families, so we spend a lot of time together, camping and just spending time in God's great outdoors.

I love Living Water Church because everyone is always welcome, everyone is "real" and focused on Jesus and our mission, "serving others through Christ". Sunday mornings are precious to me and I never want to miss going, because we're all a family here and I miss seeing my "church family" if I miss a Sunday. 

If I had one word to share with you, it would be believe, because it's a great word of advice in almost any situation. Welcome to Living Water and if you have a child (of any age) who would like to join our children's ministry groups, please reach out to me or another one of my Leadership team! We'd love to have you join our family!

Christine Ebner

CORE/EPIC Youth Ministry Leader

Hi! I'm Christine Ebner and I work alongside Michelle as a Youth Ministry Leader for our CORE (middle school) and EPIC (high school) kids. I am very passionate about children's ministry and helping kids experience God's, unconditional love and so enjoy the time I get to spend helping LW kids and teens grow in their faith. 

I'm a reading teacher at the Cameron Elementary School, wife to Ryan and Mom to Leah, Quinn and Rowan. I'm an early to bed, early to rise person, and I love to be busy, so I have a hard time saying no and often stretch myself too thin. I do still enjoy some free time and spend it watching my kids' sports events, walking or running, and reading. 

Living Water is our church home  and we love our church family. I love being in a congregation where you know everyone and everyone knows you. At Living Water, people truly miss you when you're not at church!  And of course Pastor Ned's sermons! They are so engaging and applicable to my daily life. Come try it out - you're always welcome here!

There's so much to learn in life and if I had one word of advice on how to navigate it, it would be listen. Listen more than you talk - this is how you learn and how you hear those pleas from those in need... and how you hear God's voice.  Our family here at Living Water invites you into our church "home" and hope you'll consider joining us! 

Cassie Larson

JAM Youth Ministry Leader

Hi there and welcome! I'm Cassie Larson and my husband Cole and our kids, Keagan and Blair have been ministry partners at Living Water for several years. I recently took on the role of JAM (Pre-k - 4th Grade) Youth Ministry Leader, and love the opportunity to help your littles grow and learn about a life in Jesus.

As a family, we love Living Water, because there is something for everyone here and yet we all share one common ground: God is good, all the time!

In my free time, I love spending time with my family and our dog, Olive. We got Olive in September and she is our first family pet. She loves kissing the kids' toes and she sleeps by Cole's side of the bed every night!  I work full time as accountant for the city of Chetek, and when I'm not at work you will find me kicking some serious butt in competitive crossfit and to decompress, I listen to audio books when I'm on the road. As a family, we love to travel, bike ride, read and explore the history of new areas together!

If I could leave you with one word to help you enrich your future, it would be knowledge. There's something new to learn in every day and knowledge helps combat fear. We'd love for you to grow with us in the knowledge of Jesus and what He has done for us, and hope you join us Sunday morning for worship. Our church family welcomes you!

Jeff Rasmussen

Leadership Team President

Greetings in God's name! I'm Jeff Rasmussen and I help manage the finances here at Living Water. I also sing on the praise team and serve as Worship Leader and communion server whenever I'm needed. I love that here at Living Water, we are a group of people who is intentional about following the Great Commandment:  Love the Lord with all your heart, mind, soul and strength and love your neighbor as yourself.

Through the years, I've been somewhat of a career chameleon - working in accounting, printing, transportation, publishing, wholesale foods, automotive, and coaching/counseling to name a few. My wife Elaine is a school teacher and we have two grown sons, Matt and Ryan. Formerly, we lived in Iowa and vacationed in Chetek, before deciding to move here permanently four years ago and I currently work with small and medium sized businesses to help them take their profits to the next level, while still owning an auto shop in Iowa. When I'm not at work, I enjoy hunting two legged critters, fishing and water skiing with my family, and just enjoying the outdoors.

If I had one word to leave with you for the journey ahead it would be persistence. Don't stop, even when life gets hard (and it will), hand it over to God in prayer and keep persisting. Our mission here at Living Water is to serve others through Christ and that mission has so many different looks and is ever changing. We'd love to have you join us in our mission efforts, because there's always a place for you - you are welcome here!

Pamela Voigt

Finance Team Leader

Hello! My name is Pam and I am Administrator of the Finance Team here at Living Water. I recently retired after 32 years from the Community Bank of Cameron and am so enjoying the extra time retirement has afforded me to spend helping my mom, seeing my kids and grandkids and taking in all their sports events! I have two sons, Chris married to Tracey and Cory, married to Jill and five amazing grandkids, Emily, Dalton, Ethan, Kellen and Alex. They call me Grammy Pammy and they're truly the light of my life.

I have been a part of Living Water from its conception and it is very near and dear to my heart. I love all the connections I have made with everyone here and look forward to many more. My little brother Kurt Huseth is our sound man and his wife Brenda plays in our praise team, which I also play in almost every Sunday!

Since retirement, I've simply had more time to do the things I love most - watching my grandkids participate in their various sports activities, spending time outdoors doing my own yard work and my mom's, and I love music and watching sports in general.

It's a tough world out there and if I could give you one word to get you through, it would be kindness. Practice kindness in thought, action and deed to everyone you meet and see how much better the world can become because of it.

Lisa Armstrong

Media Director

Welcome! My name is Lisa and I am so blessed to be doing some of the very things I love most as the Media Director here at Living Water.  I have the privilege of working alongside some of the most dedicated Jesus followers I've ever met, together in service for this amazing community.  

I am a constant dreamer and bumbling entrepreneur with a tiny cafe in the neighboring, small town of Barron. I'm also a  floral designer, wife to my husband of almost 18 years and Mama to our miracle, long awaited son Ryder who will be turning eight this Halloween. I'm also mom to our beautiful bulldog Stella, Shih tzu Maddie, and kitties Frankie and Murphy.  In my free time, you can usually find me at my computer designing custom orders for my online boutique, shopping or watching reruns on Netflix or the Food Network. If it involves food, family or friends, you can bet I'll enjoy it!

When I think of all the heavy world events that we all are facing every day, one word that continues to carry me through is purpose.  In 2015, I was diagnosed with an extremely rare, non curable form of cancer. After years of fighting to be parents, I couldn't believe I was staring death in the face with my precious miracle son, just barely two years old. I underwent stem cell transplant that summer as my only hope of remission and it very nearly took my life, but as prayers from the community, family and friends flooded in, God spared my life and I knew He had a purpose and a plan for me that hadn't yet been fulfilled and I determined that I would do whatever it took to find His purpose and follow His plan.

I believe God has a purpose for every one of us - that's why He put us here. A purpose gives you a sense of belonging and something meaningful to work for. I hope you are fulfilling God's purpose for your life and I encourage you - if you aren't or if you're struggling to find yours - please reach out to us so we can help. YOU have a purpose and YOU are welcome here!
