Jenna has gone to camp since day camp and has led on the Regional Youth Cabinet for 4 years. Very excited to be bringing Adult Camp to Tall Oaks.
Lisa Engelken, Director
"Life is all about Plan B." This is Lisa Engelken's life motto. When you think have everything planned, organized, and ready to go-God call's us elsewhere. Lisa is the mother of four beautiful children, three grandchildren. Lisa is married to William Engelken whom they meet at The University of Kansas her freshman year. Her life is wonderfully crazy. In the midst of the chaos of raising children, Lisa was called into ministry to help share story the people of God's faithful stories-not to just children but to their families.
Lisa is a commissioned minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) serving in the Greater Kansas City Region and serves as Coordinator of Children Worship & Wonder at Disciples Home Missions. Lisa has served as Director for Day Camps and Grandparents camp for Tall Oaks for many years. She is excited to explore our faith together in the sacred space outdoors at Tall Oaks as a Day Camp Director for 2022.
