HSM (High School Ministry: 9-12)

At every baptism, we hear Jesus say, “Let your light shine before others that they see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).” HSM (High School Ministry) is designed to help young people in 9th – 12th grades figure out ways to live out their faith in daily life while letting God’s love shine through them into the world.

Welcome Nick Clark our New Interim Director of High School Ministries

Incarnation is excited to welcome Nick Clark as our new Interim Director of High School Ministries!

Nick has been serving in congregational Youth Ministry since 2009. He graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead with degrees in Religion and Written Communication, and has an M.A. in Children, Youth, and Family Ministry from Luther Seminary in St. Paul. Nick’s ministry has always been rooted in helping others thoughtfully discern and apply their unique gifts toward God’s mission in the world. He joined InterServe Ministries in 2019. InterServe’s mission is to work alongside congregations as they experience times of transition in their Children or Youth Ministry program. As well as working to maintain programming in an interim capacity, Nick’s role with InterServe is to help congregations discern their unique needs and priorities for youth ministry, implement a model for change, and assist the congregation in their process of securing long-term staffing.

Nick lives in Woodbury with his wife Liz, sons Harvey (3) and Everett (1), and two dogs.

High School Milestone

Faith Milestones are a series of programs designed to build “Faith in the Family” starting from the time a child is an infant and continuing through their graduation from high school. It is a program that recognizes the incredible impact parents have on the faith life of their children and works to partner with parents on the faith education of their children and to help them live out the promises they made at their child’s baptism.
