Podrishioner Profile: Katie and Jeff Luehm

Katie and Jeff are faithful podrishoners currently working as advocates for vulnerable children and orphans in El Salvador.

A Well-Oiled Team

The January 2019 Woodland medical mission team to Cambodia could count on two things in their daily routine: they would be up at the crack of dawn, and they’d fall asleep as soon as their heads hit the pillow. Everything in-between, however, was a new adventure. Read More

testimonial-icon

"We have been podrishioners for several months. Our daughter, son-in-law and grandkids moved back to California after living in MN for 10 years. They attended Woodland Hills for about a year before they moved. Now we all go to the beach together on Thursdays, come home and have dinner together, then we watch last Sunday’s sermon together. It is a special day for our family."

– Dale and Patricia, from California
