Oak Grove welcomes Britta Weber as our new Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry. Britta started at Oak Grove on August 19 and comes to us with a variety of experience with youth and children.
Britta is a recent graduate of St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN with a dual degrees in Norwegian and Religion, and concentrations in Middle Eastern and Nordic studies. She is especially intrigued by the intersection of religion and politics, and loves to figure out what unites us, rather than divides us across religious lines.
Britta spent the first half of childhood in Austin, TX, and her middle school years in Telemark, Norway where she discovered her love for the Norwegian language and culture. In high school, she was mega band-nerd. This was where she also met her now fiancé, Peter. They are very excited to get hitched this coming May!
Britta loves spending free time enjoying nature: in a hammock, on a hike, by a lake, or on a run are some of her favorite ways to be present in God’s beautiful creation.
She is also always on the hunt for cute coffee shops, thought-provoking books, and good indie/folk and jazz music that she can play or sing along to.
Britta is very excited to join Oak Grove and to grow in the compassionate and driven spirit of this community. She feels especially blessed to serve alongside such an inspiring bunch of youth!
