Our Team

Current Directors

Amy Freundschuh

Director of Operations

As a child, I loved playing “church” and I loved Jesus. I had an understanding of the various religious traditions, but it wasn’t until recent years that I came to know the Lord in new and personal ways and recognized His hand on my life.

My husband Shawn and I have two grown sons. My past work experience includes project management and implementation of programs. I am grateful to put those skills to work here at the ministry. I also have a special interest in preventative health, so it is gratifying to see clients at Ministry of Reconciliation find healing physically, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually.

Shelly Larson

Director of Education

I was introduced to Jesus as a young girl, but I rededicated my life to Him as my Lord at the age of 15, once I understood what it meant to have a personal relationship with Him.

My husband Brooks and I have two grown sons and one daughter-in-law. My work history includes teaching elementary students, life coaching, and serving seniors in assisted living and memory care settings. I have always found great fulfillment in connecting and growing with others spiritually. I love to study the Scriptures, write curriculum, plan and organize learning opportunities, and most of all, encourage others in their walk with God.

Board of Directors

Michael Bergstrom

President

After being a client at Ministry of Reconciliation (MOR) in 2017, I left with a knowledge of who I am in Christ and found a level of freedom that I had not experienced before. Seeing how God spoke to me through MOR convinced me that I wanted to help others through the ministry process. I have done this through serving as a prayer minister and as a member of the MOR Board of Directors. My wife Amy and I have two kids, and vocationally I have served in Executive positions in Operations and Sales.

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Deuteronomy 31:6

John Shrewsbury

Vice President

I was introduced to Ministry of Reconciliation (MOR) by my wife, who has flourished in the ministry since 2013.  I have served as a prayer minister, and have been amazed at the power of God’s work at MOR with our clients. I am a retired 22-year veteran of the Air Force having served as an F-16 Fighter Pilot, yet none of that compares to the day I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. I’m very blessed to be surrounded by so many talented people on the Board of Directors at MOR, all serving God’s will in their lives.

“Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”
Ephesians 4:31-32

Marina Weddington

Secretary

I came to Ministry of Reconciliation (MOR) during a difficult transition in my life. Through this ministry I was able to view the people, the situation, and my life through Holy Spirit’s eyes rather than my own. The forgiveness and healing I experienced were transformational and I want to see that happen for everyone who comes to MOR!

I have one adult son, I retired three years ago from a telecommunications career and now volunteer with MOR and as a police chaplain in my community.

A scripture I find meaningful is Isaiah 30:21. “Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you, and therefore He exalts Himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are those who wait for Him.”

Susan Kuchar

Treasurer

I went through this ministry in 2018. I met two beautiful Prayer Ministers as well as the healing love of Jesus and I do not have enough line space to justly describe it. I found many opportunities at Ministry of Reconciliation (MOR) to learn, grow, and get to know some wonderful people. God has opened my eyes, expanded my heart, and showed me that there is purpose for my pain and I am eternally grateful. Besides working to advance God’s kingdom, I am a small business owner and I teach classes. The Lord gave me the following scripture to describe my experience at MOR.

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
Psalm 23:1-6
