    I’m an Indiana native now living in Wyoming. Molding the minds of high school & community college students was my profession for 6 years as a history teacher before leaving that career for a life of ministry. I was on staff at a church in West Virginia, before landing with our new family at First Christian Church. Since arriving in Wyoming, I’ve become a Chaplain with local law enforcement, and spend as much time in the mountains hiking, skiing, hunting, and fly fishing as time allows. My beautiful bride, Amber, and I have been married for over 20 years and have two amazing children, Eli & Savannah.


    A life centered on God is what I struggle to live everyday and I believe God's Word, his love letter written to us, will continue proving to be all sufficient in all areas of ministry and life at FCC.

    Minister of Education

    EMAIL


    I have served at FCC since 2008, and am experiencing great joy in working with adults as we pursue God together. I came to faith in Jesus Christ at age 14 where God began shaping my heart for ministry through a love for His Body, the Church. My husband Kevin and I enjoy life with our sons Corbin and Luke, who often accompany me as we hike, bike, and enjoy the outdoors. I am most content hiking to a secluded place in nature where I can connect with God and read a book. God has called me to the specific task of equipping others for the work of ministry, and has given me a passion for developing our awareness of and hearts for disciple-making. One of my greatest joys is seeing how God makes his presence known in the midst of difficult circumstances. We CAN choose joy!

    CHILDREN'S Minister

    EMAIL

    I came to faith as a young child because of someone who served in the children's ministry at the church I grew up in. What an awesome privilege it is to share Jesus with children and help them build a firm foundation to walk in faith for the rest of their lives! Scott and I grew up together in California and we married in 2006. As a young adult, I went to the School of Worship, where I learned how to live and lead others in a life of Worship. Since then, God has given us three amazing kiddos: Westin, Lance, and Alaura. We moved to Laramie in January 2015 and were amazed how quickly we felt at home.

    Secretary

    I was born and raised a Disciple having served God in multiple DOC churches along the front range. As a single mother of two girls, we moved to Laramie in 1990 to finish my degree in Education at the University of Wyoming. I have had many careers in my lifetime including; 17 + years with Sears, 17+ years with Laramie County Community College and 6 years with the Geological Survey as well as other part-time jobs along the way. I retired from full time work in 2012 to help with my grandchildren when my youngest grandson Avery was born with a congenital heart defect. I am Nana to three boys Aiden – 15, Gavin - 11 and Avery – 5. I came to work as the secretary of the church to fill some time and found this is where God was leading me. I love my “job” working alongside others who love and serve the Lord.

    Bookeeper & Nursery Coordinator

    EMAIL

    I joined the staff in April 2014 as bookkeeper and also serve as the nursery co-ordinator. I came to Laramie for college in 2007, where I completed a bachelor's degree in Agricultural Business and went on to finish up a Master's in Agriculture with an emphasis in Youth Development/Community Development in Extension. When not busy serving at church, I can be found working one of my many other jobs or volunteering with Special Olympics - Laramie, or baking sugar cookies. I live with my sister, Meghan Mae and have two fur babies, Henderson, the crazy cat and Sydney, the old lady mini Australian shepherd. I have attended a great variety of churches over the course of my life - growing up on ranches and in rural communities - whatever church was available was the one we attended.
