I joined the team here at Grandview in September of 2013, I am excited to see all that God has in store for the church that meets here in Canon City. A Colorado native, I have always enjoyed the mountains and the outdoors. I was transplanted to western Nebraska when I was young and I am an avid Cornhusker fan. I went to college at Ozark Christian College where I was blessed in two ways.
First I got my BMW (beautiful magniﬁcent wife), Tara. We have been married for 23 years and have four boys. Second I received my Bachelors degree in Biblical literature in 1991. I started in youth ministry and transitioned into senior ministry.
I have been a church planter and I am passionate about discipleship. My journey as a Christian and in ministry has been full of ups and downs. I have found and can testify to the goodness of our Lord. I am willing to be used however He sees ﬁt to accomplish His will at Grandview and in my life. I have found that Proverbs 3:5-6 has been key to my spiritual journey. It states, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.”
I have been with GrandView Christian Church since 1990. I started working in the office, as secretary for our youth department, in July of 1994. I am currently the Office Manager/Secretary. This position has always been my ministry, more than a job. I love working for GrandView and over the years I have seen a lot of changes at the church and in Canon City.
I was born and raised in Canon City and attended Blair Business College, where I received my secretarial degree. I am married to an amazing man, Dave. We have raised three beautiful children and are now being blessed with the privilege of watching our 6 grandchildren grow up here in Canon City. Even better than all of the above, is the fact our children are all believers and each of them have their special part in helping/working at GrandView.
Some of my favorite past-times are bowling, horseback riding, bowling, eating out, camping, traveling, watching our grandchildren and other family members play soccer, baseball, softball and other outdoor sports and did I mention, bowling. I love to bowl and I have been blessed with the fact that I get to bowl with my mom on three different leagues a week and we participate, together, in several tournaments a year.
