With a heart for service and the arts, Mignon, along with a few friends, started a new ministry at St. John's Lutheran School & Church in 2005.  They named it KIDS Musical Theater.  Through a few tears and many more smiles, this ministry continues to be one of the most impressive outreach programs at St. John's.

Mignon has dedicated more than ten years into successfully keeping the focus of this ministry to grow kids in the love of Christ.  Now, KMT is finally producing the musical closest to Mignon's heart: Anne of Green Gables.  This is her directing debut!  


Additionally, Mignon serves as a Board Member of the Community Foundation of Orange and is involved many community activities.  She and her husband, Fred, have raised 3 children, ages 23, 22 & 19.  Fred & Mignon reside in Old Towne Orange, about 5 blocks from St. John’s Lutheran with their dog “Tramp” and 2 cats “Cleopatra” and “Cinna”.

Those of us on the leadership team, are very excited to share this experience with Mignon. God has always blessed this ministry and we know He will bless Mignon as she takes these children under her wings to produce and direct this heart-warming, family-friendly tale.
