LSCA Staff and Summer Openings

Kerma – Camp Manager (center)

Kerma is passionate about things that foster community within the body of Christ… and believes that camp and the outdoor setting is a wonderful place for this to happen.

Kerma has lived in seven states, growing up primarily in Florida and Colorado. Originally seeking a career in business and finding that it did not suit her, she went to Wheaton College to study educational ministries in the form of camp ministry with one of those years at HoneyRock in northern Wisconsin.  Then she spent the following three years working at Life Church in Wheaton serving in the college and community ministries. She has been serving at Lake Springfield Christian Assembly since the spring of 2008.
