Laura is co-founder of Underground Seminary and Ministry Catalyst at Church of All Nations.
Laura grew up in the St. Croix River watershed of rural Wisconsin, among pine trees and dairy farms. Her passion for Underground Seminary is driven by a desire to uproot ‘empire-sickness’ from herself and others and to cultivate spaces of healing and health. She has deep gratitude for the immigrants and indigenous people in her life who mentor her into life-giving ways of being, and who validated the conviction that living in deeply rooted connection to spirit, place, and community are possible. As Lead Strategist, Laura keeps the big picture in focus while catching small details.
