Board of Directors

Jon Carlson

Board Chair/Treasurer

I had my first experience with Prayer Ventures when I attended a workshop. I am now a member of the Board and I serve as a prayer minister. I once read that prayer warriors are built through (often extreme) suffering.  For some reason I was intrigued, and I told God that I wanted to be one.  I have never sought out suffering but am learning that it changes things… mostly my heart.

Kathy Boyes

Executive Director

God started my journey to Prayer Ventures in 2012 at a women’s retreat. I experienced first-hand the rich anointing of this ministry and my time with God has been forever changed! Serving as a prayer minister, I witness the Holy Spirit do amazing healing and restoration in the lives of people. It’s an honor to lead and do the work Jesus called me to for His ministry through Prayer Ventures.

Jane Pooler


I have been blessed to be part of the Board since 2010, serving as Secretary for the past four years. As a prayer ministry team member, I see the Lord working in the lives of His people. It’s a privilege to share the love of Christ with those who do not know Him, and with those seeking healing, faith and trust in the One true God.

Rev. Jonna Fantz

Board Member

I’m an ordained Evangelical Covenant pastor, and in my two decades of ministry I’ve served several churches in the Twin Cities.  My passion is helping people say their next YES to Jesus. One of my favorite things that happens in prayer is when I discern a name to call God and I hear a name He is calling me.

Marina Weddington

Board Member

Marina was first introduced to Prayer Ventures through a healing prayer training. This led her to our internship program which is part of the process of becoming a Prayer Ventures prayer minister. Marina serves on the Chaplin Corps for the Bloomington Police Department where she helps bring God’s love and peace to people at times of crisis. It is an honor to have Marina on our board of directors!
