Program: Stretched to the Limit

Carmen Richards was elected president of Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America in July 2005. She served as treasurer of the Women of the ELCA for three years, and prior to that was a synodical treasurer for four years. During her terms, she assisted with guidelines and forms to eliminate cluster treasuries. She helped plan and budget the “Embracing Self and Others” and “Paths to Wholeness” programs and a trip to Central African Republic. She has also been involved in Synodical Advanced Leadership Training (SALT) training and organized and hosted a booth at the Women’s Showcase about Women of the ELCA (a first for a religious group).

She is a member of Redeemer Lutheran Church, Hope, N.D., where she has served as organist, Sunday school teacher.

Carmen and her husband, Randy operate a farm in Hope, N.D., and have three adult children; two daughters and one son. They are all married and the three granddaughters and twin grandsons are a real joy in the lives of their grandparents.
