CHILDREN’S MINISTER

Libby Rinne (wife to our Youth Pastor, Isaac Rinne), grew up on a farm in De Smet, SD. She is the youngest of four girls. Libby loves to make things and be creative. She is a child at heart and will almost never leave a store without visiting the toy section! A Nebraska Christian College graduate, Libby wants nothing more than to see children find Christ. She sees that her job gives her the privilege to help kids take those first steps on their journey with Christ. Who wouldn’t be excited to come to work with a job like hers?

YOUTH PASTOR

Isaac Rinne (husband to our Children’s Minister, Libby Rinne), is the second oldest of 5 kids; 2 brothers and 2 sisters. His family lived in San Antonio for 7 years so, naturally, he is a Spurs and Cowboys fan. In 2005, Isaac’s family moved to Nebraska where his dad took over the family farm. He loves basketball and could play any time of day! A graduate of Nebraska Christian College, Isaac’s passion is for youth and his desire is that students would come to know the love and redemption that comes from a relationship with Christ.

What is your #1 most played song?

“One Thing Remains” by Shane & Shane. 
 

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

I would love to know how to paint cars and repair rust. I love fixing and improving things and I think that this would be something really cool to learn!
 
If you could meet one person from the Bible, who would it be?
Definitely Paul, he seems super sarcastic sometimes, so we would get along! But I love his ability to express truth in a manner that wakes you up, but doesn’t tear you down. He mastered speaking the truth in love.

 

If you could own your own business, what would you do?

I actually own a graphic design business called i5 Designs. It is focused mainly on churches and helping them improve their logos, websites, and so on; but I do work for literally anyone! It’s something that I enjoy doing in my spare time!
