Interesting Things About Connie

Areas of ministry: Family Ministry, Children's Church

When did you start attending Grace?

I came to Grace in 2013 after traveling my long and winding road back to Jesus. I knew I had found my church home because I could see and feel the real love of Jesus modeled and I could be honest with myself and others

When did you come on staff?

Although I had been volunteering in Kids church for many years, I came on staff in 2019 because I wanted to go deeper in my walk with the Lord and feel I have lots to offer the family ministry.

Which of the Core Values do you focus on and why are you passionate about it?

The Grace Core Value I feel most passionate about is “Champion Families” because the faith of the next generation is of utmost importance.

What do you love the most about your job?

I love seeing my former students grow up and come back to the church; hopefully bringing others with them.

Favorite Bible verse?

My husband Kevin and I grew up within 100 miles of each other in Illinois, but met in Germany while serving in the Army. We married in 1990. Kevin has (and I’ve inherited): 2 sons, 3 daughters, 8 grands and 3 great-grands

In my free time I like to travel, read, and see Broadway/Off Broadway shows.
