Laurel native wants to help people, wherever they may live






LAUREL — Jennifer (Lipp) Van Meter, a Laurel-Concord graduate, spent 15 years in Romania as a missionary before moving back to Nebraska in 2012.

“I felt the call to be a missionary when I was in high school,” she said. “It was just a process of determining when and where the Lord wanted me to go.”

Van Meter, who is the daughter of Jim and Marcia Lipp, grew up on a farm in the Laurel area.  Van Meter graduated from Laurel-Concord High School in 1989 and then attended Grace University in Omaha and the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. She earned a degree in elementary education and taught school for three years before moving to Romania to serve as a missionary.
