Intern Pastor

Hi, I’m Amy Vigesaa. I grew up in Hastings, MN. I attended college at UW-Eau Claire for my first 2 years then transferred to Wartburg College in Waverly, IA. I am a new student at Luther Seminary in the MDivX Program. Prior to coming to Family of Christ, I worked at Easter Lutheran Church in Eagan, MN, as the Director of Adult Ministry and also as a Worship Leader for the Contemporary Worship Services. I am married to Hans Vigesaa, a rostered Deacon in the ELCA, and we have 5 children: 4 boys and 1 girl, ages 10-20. We also have a lovable 90 lb. lap dog named Ollie and an anti-social hedgehog named June. I love music, art and writing. I sing as well as play piano and some guitar. I enjoy being out in nature, hiking or going for walks with our dog.
