Musicians and Speakers

We are looking forward to having His Way share their gift of music with us on Saturday evening.

His Way is a (WELS) Jesus-First Christian music group from Milwaukee, WI. We specialize in original music, modern versions of hymns and other Christian songs heard on the radio. They have been playing music together since 2012.

Their mission is the Great Commission. Bring friends and guests to hear God’s Word in music! They have two albums focused on specific verses, chapters and sections right from the Bible. We are spreading God’s word and Jesus’ love through their blessed talents.

Kristi Meyer

Kristi Meyer has had the privilege of serving on the WELS Women’s Ministry Executive Team since January 2020. Her role with Women’s Ministry is somewhat fluid: she oversees the budget, serves as secretary, assists the other Executive Team members in whatever ways she can, and spearheads special projects here and there. One of those special projects, Reflections on Our Unique Callings, debuted in Summer 2021, bringing together her work with Women’s Ministry and her current academic interests for the Master of Arts in Theological Studies program through Martin Luther College.

Kristi has served as a mathematics professor at Wisconsin Lutheran College since July 2006 and is incredibly blessed to be able to work with her students in a confessional Lutheran environment. She is also the part-time Communications Coordinator for her home church, St. John’s Lutheran in Wauwatosa, WI – a job that lets her exercise the parts of her brain not connected to math and science. When she’s not working, studying, or writing, she enjoys running and biking, camping, playing handbells, and spending time with family and friends.
