Minister of Education
I attended church sporadically growing up. If a church happened to have a bus ministry where we lived, my four brothers and I would ride it. I loved going because I knew there was something different about the people (Christians) in those churches. They had a peace and joy that we did not experience in our home. When I was a junior in high school, we were put into a Christian children’s home, Palmer Home. It was there I felt a call on my life to follow Christ and to serve Him in full-time ministry.
After spending the first 20 years of marriage serving in all areas of the church while raising and homeschooling our children, the Lord opened the door for me to go back to school where I received a MACE and Ph.D. (NOBTS). Hillcrest called me to serve as Minister of Education/Administration in 1999.
My passion in ministry is to see others develop to their full potential as followers of Christ and to help them get connected to a place of service in their church family. I am so blessed to be part of a wonderful staff and equally wonderful church family. My goal is to continue to learn to lead more effectively in my respective areas of ministry and to grow deeper in my relationship with my Lord and Savior.
