Meet the New Staff:
What a blessing to have new staff members! The past few months have been overwhelming for me as your pastor. I am not a juggler, but I have been juggling more than the normal amount of tasks and responsibilities. The parking lot project, the Marcus’ family moving away, our Administrative Assistant moving away and hiring replacements. All while we were attempting to keep the church going strong! Thanks to the grace of God we are welcoming some wonderful new staff to our team.
“Music is the language God has so often used to help me discover His great love for me. I remember, as a little boy, being moved by the words of “In the Garden” and “Day by Day.” More recently, Kim Walker’s “How He Loves,” Jered Anderson’s “Amazed,” and Crowder’s “Come as You are” are songs that powerfully speak of God’s Amazing goodness to us. When I was fifteen I prayed, ‘God, I want a job where I can just pray and talk to people about You.’ Although, ministry is not quite that simple, it is such a privilege to prepare the music the church will use to express its gratitude to God.” Bob has a B.A. in Music with an emphasis in conducting from EWU and is working on a Masters in Theology from Liberty University. He is crazy about gardening, volleyball, pingpong and his wife. His favorite Bible verse is 2 Peter 1:3-8.
Sharon grew up in the Northwest and has an Interdisciplinary degree in Education and Fine Arts from Liberty University. She taught Pre-Kindergarten and First grade and has also been a Children’s Ministry Director for several years. Her passion is to help and encourage kids (and adults) to understand the Word and get to know Jesus for who He really is. She loves spending time with Bob, her best friend and husband, writing, painting, baking, having people over, playing the piano, and could dine on vegi pizza every day of the world.
