Shannon Hecksel _ Director of Youth and Family Ministry

I am the Student and Family Ministry Director, and work with confirmation, junior and senior high ministry. I started my role on June 1, 2018, and have served in congregations in Richfield, Rosemount, Afton and Prior Lake before coming to Hosanna. I love building relationships with students, keeping them connected to Jesus through the word of God.

I married my amazingly supportive wife, Kelly on December 28th, 2002. We have four children: Cadison, Brayden, and twins Kailyn and Taryn. In addition to my family, music is another area of passion in my life, and I have a BA in music ed from Concordia University, St. Paul. I actually began my ministry at Minneapolis Lutheran High School directing band and choir prior to becoming a youth director.
