Jodie is the wife of the lead pastor but we don’t hold that against her. Jodie can often be found at one of the many soccer fields cheering on one (or more) of her four kiddos. Jodie is responsible for the upkeep of the new church facilities and making sure that we steward our resources well. Her willingness to do all of the little things that often go unnoticed is a huge blessing to our church.
