Janis Buelow is our Director of Christian Education intern from Concordia University – Seward, NE (‘Sko Dawgs!!), where she graduated in Spring 2021, for the year! She started in June of 2021 and will be here until June of 2022. She double majored in Theology and Christian Educational Leadership and will be pursuing her MA in Family Ministry at Concordia University Ann Arbor/Wisconsin online after internship. Janis has a background in youth ministry and participated in multiple leadership opportunities at her home church in Indiana, where she grew up. Her practicum site in Lincoln, NE focused on adult ministries as well as children’s ministry which taught her a lot about relationships and how influential families are on the spiritual growth of children! She also participated in camp ministry, where she met her husband Colby. Colby is a Mechanical Engineering major from Western Kentucky University and is currently working as a Machinist here in Michigan. They have a Miniature Australian Shepherd named Mira, who loves to play fetch and try new fruits! Her favorite Bible verse is currently John 14:27, which says, “Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” She is most looking forward to learning more about Christ through church ministry at Trinity during her internship this year.
