With great joy, executive director Rev. Jon Halvorson presented the 2021 Director’s Reflection Award to Janet Rhoads. She has an incredibly long history of involvement in all aspects of the life of Metigoshe Ministries, and is a wonderful recipient of this award whose purpose is to recognize “those individuals who have extraordinarily influenced this ministry to the glory of God.”
Janet is a longtime member of Christ Lutheran Church in Minot. She is a vital member at both church and synodical level for the Women of the ELCA – and devotes countless hours each month to the WELCA newsletter. She has been an active participant in the ministry of Metigoshe for many decades: bringing youth groups to camp and “Friday Night Live” events; ensuring camp and congregational partnerships remain strong; providing generous financial support not only to the CIII annual fund and to various capital campaign drives – but also seeking out ways to creatively support special projects. And, as a part of our most recent Ensure the Adventure capital campaign, Janet was an active volunteer in many phases of the campaign – including serving as the chair of the Women of the Church drive.
Janet, you are a blessing to our ministry and to the church as a whole – and you are deeply appreciated. Congratulations and thank you for all that you do!
