Linda K. Reiser was born and raised on a farm in Waterbury, Nebraska. She was confirmed at Trinity Lutheran Church, Martinsburg, Nebraska, where fall mission festivals began to spark her interest in the mission work of the church.
That mission interest was further realized as she served as the 15th President of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League from 2003-2007. As President of the LWML, Linda was able to witness firsthand the amazing ‘mighty mite box’ donations from the women of the church. Linda was able to witness firsthand a graduation ceremony in Bo, Sierra Leone, where men were being ‘set aside’ for ministry in local congregations at the Center for Theological Studies that was started by an LWML grant 30 years ago.
Currently, Linda serves as a board member for Lutheran World Relief, Mission of Christ Network and on the Nominating Committee for Lutheran Church Extension Fund. She also serves on the Mission-Ministry Council of her local church.
In her home Nebraska District LCMS, Linda is a member of the Lutheran Ministry Foundation Board of Directors and serves on the Nebraska District Lutheran Church Extension Fund Committee. She has been married to her husband and best friend, Ron, for 40 years. They have two married adult children, 2 grandsons and 4 granddaughters.
