Congregation Vote on Call Update

The results of the congregational vote that occurred Sunday, May 7, overwhelmingly approved the call of Janet Karvonen-Montgomery as a part time associate pastor here at Incarnation! Welcome Janet!

Janet will have responsibility to work with the senior pastor in the areas of the endowment and stewardship; developing and leading fellowship activities; and general pastoral responsibilities.

In her own words, Janet has a passion for stewardship with the hope to inspire others to live a life of generosity. She also has strong interest in helping people develop “the whole person”, especially in aiding in health and wellness as we are called to care for our God-given bodies so that we can be most effective in serving God in this world. Janet was a recipient of the Luther Seminary Graduate Preaching Fellowship for 2015-2016. Her educational background includes a bachelor’s degree from Louisiana Tech University in Journalism and a Master of Divinity degree from Luther Theological Seminary in St. Paul. Janet comes to us highly recommended by the St. Paul Area Synod of the ELCA of which we are a part.

Janet and her husband Al, have five children, including a daughter-in-law, and one granddaughter. Al is an orthodontist at Montgomery Orthodontics in Shoreview. Currently they reside in North Oaks.
