  • Donnie - Youth Director

    Donnie Lehmann was born on an Air Force base in Alaska, Donnie has made his way to Kenosha, and could not think of any other place he would like to call home than Kenosha. There are four things that Donnie loves: God, Family, Youth Ministry and Food.  Most would say the order changes depending on how hungry he is. All kidding aside, serving is what drives Donnie. Having been on multiple mission trips throughout the world and being involved in youth ministry, it is safe to say that he has found his true calling in serving the church. Donnie looks forward to helping the youth groups at Spirit Alive grow in their knowledge and understanding of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit--and how to eat 26 tacos in one lunch sitting.

    Christina Oldani has been playing with the Spirit Alive Praise Team for about ten years and absolutely loves it!  She says, “We have a fantastic group of talented and loving people who come together with their musical gifts to share in worship with Spirit Alive. The people and the music feed my soul in a way nothing else can.”
