Children’s Ministry, 0-5 years
We moved to Bend in April of 2004 to support the planting of The Fellowship at Bend. Since that time I have been privileged to serve in many different ways. I have enjoyed leading women’s Bible studies, conducting women’s retreats and meeting with many different women, one on one. I have worked with children for many years and am currently privileged to be overseeing the Children’s Ministry at The Fellowship.
I also get to serve alongside my husband, Loren (sr) who is an elder at TFAB. In addition to overseeing the 2nd Halfers group, we often make hospital visits, pray with people and enjoy helping in any way we can.
It has been such a joy to be a part of TFAB from the first day until now. There is no greater joy than watching God at work in his people… saving them, growing them, joining them together as one in the body of Christ. It is exciting to be a part of a church that loves Jesus and seeks to exalt Him above all else.
I have been married to my husband Loren for 36 years. God has blessed us with four amazing children: Loren, Sharon, Brett and Laura. Together with their wonderful spouses they have given us eight (and counting) grandchildren.
I love all having all my kids and grandkids nearby, we get to spend a lot of time together! During the warmer months you will often find me out camping or sitting by a stream reading a book while my husband fishes.
