Pastor Diane Sponheim began her call to serve Faith Lutheran Church in February 2015. She is delighted to serve this congregation as we discover together how God is encouraging this community to be faithful to our calling to care for one another and the world around us.

Pastor Sponheim was ordained in 1998, after having worked in the fields of youth ministry and music therapy. In her capacity as an ordained minister, she has served three other congregations: Lutheran Church of the Cross in Altoona, Iowa (1998-2000), Westwood Lutheran Church in St. Louis Park (2001-2007), and Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church in Apple Valley (2007-2015).

Over the years,Pastor Diane has taught music, worked in print media, traveled in musical groups, and done a variety of creative jobs just for the fun of it! In her spare time, Diane enjoys reading, running/biking/hiking, traveling, having coffee with friends, gardening, singing, and most importantly, hanging out with her family. Diane and her sons Micah, 20 and Luke, 17 live in Apple Valley.
