New Director of Youth Minstry

The Director of Youth Ministry Search Committee is thrilled to announce that Dan Miglets-Nelson will be our new Director of Youth Ministry and will begin at the House of Hope on Sunday, November 1.

Dan has brought creativity, energy, and passion to youth ministry for 10 years while serving churches in Texas, Nevada, Illinois and Minnesota. He holds a Master of Divinity from Luther Seminary and currently serves in a local Episcopal church. Dan and his wife Julia live in Minneapolis. 

The committee was particularly impressed with Dan’s references who said:

“Dan would be a perfect fit at House of Hope!”

“Dan really shines when it comes to relationship building with teenagers. Really, he can connect with people of all ages.”

“He’s authentic and genuine, pleasant…and wholehearted.”

“Dan is very engaging, really empathetic, and brings energy and sensitivity to all that he does.”

“He focuses on intergenerational ministry, working hard to include everyone.  He instills confidence with the parents.”

In his own words…
“I want to bring my passion and experience in engaging with people and their stories to help lead the efforts of the House of Hope in creating and sustaining a more loving and trustworthy world for the sake of the Gospel.”
