Financial Secretary
How did you become a Christian?
I became a Christian through a neighbor inviting me to Community Bible study when I was 40. I did not grow up in church and thought the stories about Jesus seemed impossible until a few months into the study, God spoke through a Scripture and I heard Him. From that, I knew He was real.

How long have you been at SPC?

My husband Lenny and I started attending SPC in 2004.

Why are you drawn to the role of Financial Secretary?
For some strange reason, I like counting cash and processing deposits. I do that for my husband's business and enjoy it. It was a good fit for me to become financial secretary.

What is your favorite Bible verse or story?
Romans 12:2, Proverbs 3:5 and Romans 12:28 have been anchors of hope for me.

Where are you involved through SPC?
Over the years, I have been involved in many ministries but in this season of my life, working full-time, I am only in my current role.

What is a fun fact about you?

I went on a journey to Israel and was baptized in the Jordan river. My friend, Pat looked around and said "look at the people from all the nations being baptized". Email
