I am honored to accompany the children and families of our church on their faith journey. As the parent of two young daughters, my husband and I deeply appreciate being part of a supportive community during the joys and challenges of life. I am a graduate of Calvin College and Western Theological Seminary. In 2000, I was ordained as a Minister of Word and Sacrament for the Reformed Church in America. I have been on staff at churches in Lansing, Grand Rapids and Seattle. For the past 10 years my family has worshipped at Ada Congregational Church. I have just recently stepped into the position of Children’s Ministry Director. One of my passions is celebrating the seasons of the church year through sensory oriented worship. It is in these times that we often discover God’s grace anew. My family loves to eat s’mores around the campfire and craft projects together.
