Meet Us Monday: Miss Michelle Hennig, Deaconess Intern

We are happy to welcome Miss Michelle Hennig to the Immanuel community for the 2019-2020 academic year as a Deaconess Intern.

As the daughter of a Lutheran Pastor, Miss Hennig’s family moved several times, but the majority of her childhood was spent in southern and central Illinois. Attending Lutheran schools from Kindergarten through high school helped to shape both her faith and vocation as a future church worker.

With a love for singing and theology, Miss Hennig chose to pursue these interests at Concordia University Chicago. Miss Hennig is a Theology major in the process of obtaining her Deaconess certification, with double minors in Classical Education and Psychology. At Concordia, she ran track, sang in the choir, worked for residence life, served as a mentor for freshmen students, built relationships with fellow believers, and met her fiance, Andrew.

Miss Hennig enjoys traveling, hiking, camping, sewing, singing, being with her family, and spending time with her dog, Luther. She is looking forward to serving and working with Immanuel Lutheran Church and School students and families in the coming year.
