Youth Ministry is an exciting ministry, and it is always changing! Children are the future and I hope to help them build a firm faith foundation. My favorite part of what I do at Divine Redeemer is serving others on Serve Sundays, mission trips, and at Youth Gatherings. Other parts of my job that I also love include running Vacation Bible School, working with the Director of Kids Connection Sunday School, Confirmation Classes, Easter Breakfast, Egg Hunts, Youth Group mother-daughter events and much more! I really enjoy working with people of all ages, so reach out to me if you ever want to help because I always need a hand! Ann Marie Hahn

I grew up in Brookfield and then earned a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in German at U.W.-Madison. My studies abroad in Austria and Germany were amazing and I hope to travel there again someday.  I was a teacher and homemaker before taking on the position as Director of Youth Ministries.  I have three adult children, two have graduated from college and one is already married! Currently I am also studying at Concordia in Mequon where my youngest daughter also attends. My husband and I have been together since I was in high school, and we have been members of Divine Redeemer since 1997.  My favorite thing to do in my free time is to spend time with my family, especially in nature and near water. Learn more about YouthLearn more about Confirmation.Learn more about VBS.
