Lana is the Youth Pastor at Elevation for eMerge Youth. She has been
in ministry for over 15 years and has been in many different roles.
Lana’s passion is PEOPLE! She has been involved in developing Women’s
Ministries, Music Ministries, Children’s Ministries and Youth Ministries.

Lana believes that our youth group is the NOW GENERATION. Not the “next” generation. Each person is called for a God-given purpose and growing closer to God and walking with Him is the goal. Everyone matters NOW and everyone has purpose NOW. You are not too young to be used by God and to hear from God.

Lana is married to Pat, who is an amazing youth leader in eMerge. They live in the Appleton area. In her free time, Lana loves to travel. Whether it be a Caribbean cruise (which is her favorite), to visit family, or to travel for missions, when trips are planned, Lana says “Count me IN!!”
