Church Council

Light of Christ's Council is made up of elected members of the congregation. Each serve a three year term. Council's priority is to create and develop long-term goals that put Light of Christ's ministry and service at the focus. 

Kylee Amdor, President
Kylee has been a member of Light of Christ since 2012 when she and her husband, Aaron, relocated to Delano from Hannibal, MO.  In addition to joining church council in 2018, she currently co-leads the altar guild team.  Kylee joined council because she was looking to grow in faith and service of the Lord as an active member and leader of the church.  As the parent of a 4 year old son, Evan, Kylee wants to ensure her children have the opportunity to learn, grow and solidify their faith foundation in a strong church with a caring church family. 

Dan Langner, Vice President
Dan and his wife Laurie, along with their, sons Jon and Lee, relocated from South Dakota in 1989.  After settling in Delano, one of the first things they looked for was a church home.  They were blessed to be welcomed into Light of Christ, finding a faith home and lifelong friendships in this congregation.  Through the years, as active members, both Dan and Laurie have served on multiple committees. Dan is also fortunate to have worked in various ways with both our Middle School and High School youth. He is currently serving on Church Council because he is passionate about the opportunities that the future holds for Light of Christ.  There is much excitement within our congregation and Dan believes that will lead to growth and rich blessings for Light of Christ and and our extended church community.  

Elizabeth Kohlhof, Secretary
Elizabeth is excited to be serving her first year on the council.  Elizabeth and her husband, Marc, became members of Light of Christ in the Spring of 2017 after relocating to Independence from Austin, Texas.  She is impact and purpose driven and excited about the future growth opportunities and serving the members at LOC.  Elizabeth and Marc are also active with the youth program and will be leading a confirmation group for the third year.

Tom Sebelien, Treasurer
With the desire to be closer to our daughter and her family, Sharon and I moved to Delano from Southwest Minnesota in 2013 and immediately joined the church.  At one time, Amy Sebelien, Mike Tulkki & family were members of Light of Christ and we had become familiar with the welcoming and loving congregation that is Light of Christ.  I have been a member of the Property Committee and my involvement with the church council is with the desire to contribute in the wellbeing of this community.

Wes Aylsworth
I grew up in a strong Methodist church family but married Jessie and soon joined the Lutheran church despite Jessie’s aunt who didn’t think Wesley John Aylsworth sounded very Norwegian or Lutheran. Upon moving to Greenfield in 1986 we joined Our Fathers in Rockford where our daughters, Beth and Amy, grew up and where we were involved in leadership. We joined Light of Christ in 2007 and I have served 6 years on the Property Committee. I just took early retirement from being a Manufacturing Engineer where I spent significant time away traveling to equipment suppliers and to our plant in Mexico. I look forward to serving on the Church Council at this thriving community of followers.

Carmen Hanson

My husband, Marcus, and I joined Light of Christ after moving from Minneapolis to Delano in 2007. What drew us to Light of Christ was the uplifting community of people, the thought-provoking messages from the Pastor, and the music. I joined the council in 2020 to give more time and attention to the priorities of our church, which is a very important part of our lives, and the lives of our son, Leo, and daughter, Alice.
