I was raised in Wisconsin where I came to an active faith in God with my parents during the Jesus people movement in the 70s. At that time 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, who is also a pastor on staff. 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, and 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.
In 2017, Eric and I moved to Lancaster to work on the Worship Center staff. As a member of the Executive Team, I work closely with the lead pastor to develop the structure that supports our strategy. I also coach Ministry Leaders in the implementation of Worship Center’s mission to lead people to be growing followers of Jesus who love God and love people.
On weekends, you’ll find Eric and I biking some of the lovely trails here in Lancaster County or enjoying one of the many cozy coffee shops.
