I provide overall leadership, vision, and growth to groups, and I carry out the vision of connection and discipleship for the congregation through groups.

I was raised in Wisconsin where I came to an active faith in God with my parents during the Jesus people movement when I came to understand faith as an active relational connection with God. Since then I’ve been walking out my faith and growing in trust and truth, engaging with Him in every season of life.

Early on, my journey took me to Elim Bible Institute in Rochester, NY, where I met my husband Eric. We have four grown children and 8 grands so far! Together we’ve ministered in several states and in multiple ways including being youth ministers, college professors, and deans at our Alma Mater. I received my Masters in Ministry through Southwestern Christian University, and then founded Bridges Coaching – a coach training and leadership development organization.

Experiencing a personal relationship with God and engaging in authentic relationship with others is my heartbeat. Echoing Worship Center’s tagline to “Know Jesus, Grow Together and Serve Our World”, I believe connecting with others is where people walk out their real-life faith. As Groups Ministry Director, I am passionate about providing an inviting, practical, and powerful place for living out personal faith through authentic sharing, real-life application, and relational growth.
