Pastoral Ministry Secretary

In this, “sweet,” quiet demeanor is the heart of an aggressive warrior! The strength is here when needed – “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13.

The only way I keep moving forward in life is to stay under the shadow of His wings as my soul clings (stick, stay close, cleave) to Him, “…for You have been my help, and in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy. My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me.” Psalm 63:6-8

Humanly speaking, being a wife, pouring my life into being a mom to our two sons, and being grandma to Isaac and Naomi have given me the greatest joy and satisfaction living on this earth. Spiritually, being encouraged as a young mother to attend Bible studies in order to get to know God’s character and His Word have built a foundation for my whole life, without which I could not function.

Primarily my role at HBC is to assist Pastor Rocky with Heritage’s groups – Adult Bible Fellowship, Wednesday PM groups, and Small Groups. I am also responsible for communicating to the church body through emails, the website, the Heritage Weekly newsletter, and the Worship Guide for Sunday services.

Isaiah 50:4 “…that I may know how to sustain the weary one with a word…” This is my heart’s desire – to know God’s Word so well that I can be used to send it out in helping others on their journey. I want to point people to the Heavenly Father who alone can meet their deepest needs. My greatest joy would be to know that something I said or did led someone straight to the Savior and changed that life forever.
