Pastor Leslie Mahraun is a Denver native. She graduated from Bethany College, Lindsborg, KS, and from Luther Seminary, St. Paul, MN. Leslie is married to Daniel Mahraun, DMA. Their kids are adults and both live in North Dakota, all vacations are spoken for as Mommy and Papa make plans to visit as often as possible and the “kids” come “home” for Christmas in January. Leslie and Dan have a wonderful puppy named Walter. He’s a happy-go-lucky Corgi/Border Collie mix. It’s always a happy day when Walter is at work! For Leslie home visits, hospital or institutional visits are the heart of ministry. Jesus meets us where we are. It’s wonderful to bring the peace and love of God to worship each week, and such an honor to do so for those who are homebound or in the hospital or for whom life changes make it difficult to come to weekly worship. As an avid knitter, a gluten free eater, a happy-to-sing-alto-in-any-choir, a sinner and a beloved child of God, Pastor Leslie looks forward to all the ways God is up to in our lives, come join us at Immanuel (God with us) Lutheran Church.
