My husband Dan and I have been active members of HOPE for the past 14 years. We both enjoy living out our love for Jesus alongside our HOPE community. Small groups have been life-giving and allowed us to develop close relationships which have been crucial during difficult times in our life. I have had the great privilege of being a public school teacher for the past 24 years. It is a blessing to work with children, letting them know they are valued and loved. My prayer is that I am preparing the soil of their heart so that one day they will come to know Jesus. Both Dan and I have been involved in various ministries here at HOPE. I’ve helped with VBS, Arts Camp, Sunday School, and small groups. Dan loves helping out on the worship team and helping out in Sunday School. Outside of church, we love hanging out with our family, attending concerts, exploring new restaurants, and traveling the globe. I am excited to be involved in leadership here at HOPE and see God work through His people.
