Director of Children's Ministries
My family and I started attending Calvary Bible Church in 2007, and I joined the staff in April of 2012 as the Director of Children’s Ministries. I love being able to serve the Lord through the children and families at CBC. I also enjoy the variety and flexibility of my job, this allows me a new adventure every day and also the time I need to care for my family.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Tim, since 1996. We live in Ferguson Valley with our two daughters, Sara and Olivia. I spend most of my free time with my family. I also enjoy reading, shopping, family walks, and experiencing new places and things with my family. When I am home alone, I am kept company by my very spoiled Yorkie, Coco.
My favorite Bible verse is Romans 8:31 “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
I am incredibly grateful to be able to do what I love, where I love to serve and to serve alongside the people that I love.
My husband Bob and I have been members of Calvary Bible Church since 2005. I am thankful to be a part of the body of Christ who loves the Lord and is committed to serve Him with the gifts they have been given.
Bob served in the US Navy for 20 years and I was blessed to stay home with our children and support him while he was deployed to sea and traveled for his job. I worked in the medical field for over 25 years, and before I became the Church Secretary, I worked at Geisinger Lewistown Hospital for 16 years.
We are blessed and thankful for our son Jonathan, his fiancé Aerial, our granddaughter Kynsleigh and another due in January and our daughter, Jessica, her husband Isaiah, Gunner, Aubree, and Henry. They are my great joy.
A favorite verse of mine is:
“What does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.”
My husband, Kelley, and I have been members of Calvary Bible Church since 2001. We are grateful to be a part of this wonderful fellowship of people and to serve alongside like-minded believers in Christ. I came to know Christ as my personal Savior in 1979, and I have had a hunger to grow in Christ ever since.

Their boys are Ajax and Brecken. They are currently living in Germany. Jared is in Special Forces in the Army. Mandi is married to Luis, and they have Louie. They live in Wyomissing, PA.

One of my favorite chapters in the Bible is Psalm 90. “And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us and establish the work of our hands for us; yes, establish the work of our hands.”
