Lisa Kaveny

Lisa Kaveny started at Zion as Financial Secretary in April 2015. This position includes but is not limited to, all the work involved with the weekly offerings, paying the church’s bills, maintaining the various church checking accounts, handling HR responsibilities and helping with the annual budgeting process.

Lisa grew up in Minot, ND, ‘Home of the Norsk Hostfest!’ She previously worked for Xcel Energy for 32 years as a financial business analyst.

I decided to take the job at Zion due to the flexibility, as it allows me to have more time to spend with, and care for, my mom and also be available for my family and friends.

Lisa is married to Mike and their blended family includes four children, two granddaughters (Olive, 5, and Hadley,4), and two cats . They currently attend another Lutheran church in Buffalo.

I like to assist people with decorating, whether it is choosing paint colors, accessories or furniture! I enjoy photography and I also love to plant and take care of flowers. Together, we enjoy going up to the North Shore to snowshoe and hike. We also enjoy being at the lake, relaxing on the pontoon with our family & friends.

Her favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 3:5-6:

“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all of your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.”

She is enjoying being part of the Zion staff and getting to meet members of the congregation.

The staff is wonderful and it is very apparent that they really enjoy what they are doing.
