Sarah Blasing

Hello, my name is Sarah Blasing and I am so excited to join St. Andrew! Being the Outdoor Ministry and Youth Leadership Director feels like a wonderful fit for me, as I have been participating in and working with camping programs since 2004. I grew up in the Twin Cities, and I moved to Illinois for 7 years to attend Wheaton College for my B.A. in Psychology and my M.A. in Christian Formation and Ministry. While there I worked at Honey Rock, which is Wheaton’s camp in the summers. I am currently enrolled in Fuller’s Doctor of Ministry program with a focus on Christian Spirituality and Outdoor Ministries. In my most recent job I built an Episcopal statewide camping program from scratch because I am passionate about the kind of faith formation and community building that can happen in an outdoor setting. 
Outside of work I love running, painting, ice skating on our backyard rink, and going on family adventures. The BWCA is my favorite place, and I have gotten up there with my kids every year since I moved back to Minnesota in 2011. My kids are in 5th Grade, 3rd Grade, and Kindergarten this year. Caleb is my oldest, next is Luke, and my daughter is Abigail. We are a blended family together with my partner, who is a Lutheran youth minister, and his three elementary aged kids.
