Meet Our New Interim Youth Director: Andrew Ritten

Having wished a fond farewell to Adam Connolly, who has left for his Internship in Sleepy Eye, we are so pleased to welcome Andy Ritten as our new Interim Youth Director.  Andy grew up two miles from Camp Wapo and began working there when he was 13. He has extensive experience as a youth director and lots of energy!  He will be “interim” until we can form a lay committee this fall  to approve his permanent appointment to the role.


Here’s a message from Andy:

Hello! My name is Andrew Ritten. I recently moved over to Coon Rapids to start my career in sales, but my love for working at Camp Wapo Lutheran Bible Camp led me to youth directing! I love to have fun and have a passion for people! I love meeting new people and I am an open book, so feel free to come talk to me!


High School Mission Trip

Every Summer, Peace takes any interested high school students on a mission trip. We know our young people are seeking opportunities to make a difference in the world. These mission trips are wonderful experiences for students to grow and serve.   We do mission trips on a three-year cycle:


  • ELCA National Youth Gathering
  • YouthWorks Trip
  • Local Mission Trip

If you are interested in attending the upcoming high school mission trip, please contact us.
