Hi, this is Rich.  Let me take this opportunity to introduce the folks who partner with me in my ministry to you…


Roxie Hansen Roxie Hansen – Office Manager: Though she works “part-time” her impact is “forever-time.” She helps keep our finances straight, but our churches know her from her communications – the e-mail updates, prayer requests, event notices – that keep all our congregations up-to-date. We’re proud to say she’s been with us since 2004.
Roxie and husband Mark have 4 children of their own and 9 grands, and are now ’empty nesters.’
