THRIVE into the future!

If you are like most church leaders, this season is presenting you with unprecedented challenges in every area of ministry.

As we’ve listened to our ministry partners, leaders are experiencing a great deal of anxiety around sustaining levels of giving that will allow our vitally important ministries to survive and thrive into the future.

At LEAD, we are committed to giving you real-time tools to help you lead well, even as the landscape of ministry changes on a daily basis.

Participants have access to additional online resources. Questions? Contact




Pastor Kristen Capel is a visionary leader with 16 years of experience as a Pastor in ELCA Congregations. Most recently, Kristen served as Lead Pastor at Easter Lutheran Church, a large, two-campus congregation in Eagan, MN. During her tenure, Easter grew in attendance, engagement, and average member giving by 30%. Like most ELCA Pastors, at first Kristen approached the work of Stewardship with fear and trembling. But as she grew into the role, she found Generosity and Stewardship ministries to be both inspiring and life-giving. Kristen approaches this work with a theology of abundance, and she has found that people, created in God’s image, are wired to be generous; they just need to be invited.

Kristen lives in Minnesota with her husband, Dan and her two teenage daughters. She dabbles in art, music, freelance writing and cooking. Long walks and long naps (not necessarily in that order) fuel her soul.
