Idell Kamppi-Stelly will begin her ministry in The Barnum Jesus Center this Sunday. She is the eldest of Pastor Hal and Jean Kamppi's two daughters. Their youngest daughter, Gwen Young, lives in Moose Lake.

Kamppi-Stelly has two children, Ryan Hal of Minneapolis and Bianca Rae of Denver. She has one grandson, Jaden.

Kamppi-Stelly is no stranger to the Moose Lake area. She graduated from Moose Lake High School in 1973. Since then she has developed her core of experiential Bible knowledge under ministries in Minnesota, Montana, Oklahoma, California, North Carolina and Okinawa, Japan. National "Word" Conferences have been part of her spiritual growth experience all her life.

Her exciting adventure in Jesus Christ and training in ministering began at an early age as the family accompanied Pastor Hal when he traveled as a Statewide Director of Youth and Christian Education for a denomination.

Kamppi-Stelly is eager and ready to serve along with her father in all the aspects of the ministry - except the "Finnish" part of the many Finnish-English funerals her father conducts across the Upper Midwest.

The Barnum Jesus Center has a non-traditional service format - a free-flow worship, allowing opportunity for the operations of the giftings of The Holy Spirit (I Corinthians chapters 12-13-14). The Worship Encounter is on Sundays at 10:30 a.m.

Kamppi-Stelly's first service will be at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, June 8, at The Jesus Center located at the corner of Carlton and Main in Barnum. Her official Pastoral Installation Service will take place later this summer.
