Linda Ziehnert

Linda began working at Partners in February 2016. Her main responsibility is to connect with and strengthen Partners’ relationship with donor churches and equipping them in any way she can. For over 16 years she was on staff as the Worship Ministry Director at a large church in Spokane. On the Mission Leadership Team, she served as the Staff point of contact for all mission inquiries and decisions, working in conjunction with the mission chair and Elder Board.

At Partners, Linda serves on a ministry team that is “intentional and creative about reaching the world’s least reached people,” she said. “I love that we learn alongside our ministry partners and do not present ourselves as the ‘Westerners with all the answers.’”

Linda studied at Moody Bible Institute in Spokane and took pre-business classes at Spokane Falls Community College. In a Perspectives course, she gained a greater understanding of and love for missions. A Soul Care course through Genesis Institute taught her about mentoring. She said that her certification as a Stephen Leader and Minister helped her learn how to minister to people going through hurt and loss. When not at work, Linda enjoys spending time with her husband, grown children, and grandchildren. She also loves to serve on the worship team at church, play the piano, take long walks, and garden.
