Pastor KIDZ through Children’s Church, Sunday School, Midweek and other ministry opportunities. My main job is to help KIDZ find Jesus and know Him as their Savior and to encourage them as they live for Him.

I love chicken fixed almost any way.
Like to read, sew, try new recipes, bake, garden and take walks with Sophie (sometimes:)).
I began in ministry in Galion at the age of 18. I was a Sunday School teacher. After marriage I taught Sunday School and later KIDZ Church in Bucyrus. During our time in Bucyrus, I began an outreach ministry – Bible Bus – that went around town every Saturday. I also taught Release Time Religious Ed in 2 school districts. I did that for 7 years. I left that to go to Mt. Vernon as their Outreach Pastor where I continued using different methods to reach boys and girls outside of church (Sonshine Express, Sonshine KIDZ Clubhouse and Sonshine KIDZ after school programs). I was on staff 4 ½ years when Pastor Nathan asked me if I would consider coming to Wooster as KIDZ Pastor. We have been here since September 1999.
That’s easy! The KIDZ! I love seeing them be excited about being at church, about worshipping, and about learning. I like it best when I see their lives changing as the get to know Jesus more. I love the direction our church is going under Pastor’s leadership. There is no place I’d rather be (even North Carolina)!
