Meet Resource Counselor Heidi Lender

Heidi Lender serves as a half-time Resource Counselor. The resource counselor is an outgrowth of the strategic initiative that the Church Council set forth  that states: “We will provide resources for those broken by life’s circumstances.”

This half-time position helps members of St. Andrew’s and the community find appropriate counseling resources. Heidi also provides periodic educational opportunities about mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and coping with stress. Contact Heidi at or 651.762.9155.

Support Groups

St. Andrew’s also hosts many support groups on our campus (AA, GriefShare, NA, Divorce Support and more) that provide support and hope for anyone in the community. Details
