Director of Redeemer Kids
Nancy has served in children’s ministry at her churches in Michigan, Ohio, Florida, and now at her new home right here in Virginia. Education has been a part of every phase of her adult life.

His job moved them to Ohio and then Florida where she homeschooled some configuration of their three sons for 7 years. Once the boys were all at The Geneva School, her role changed to being a room mom, chauffeur, team mom and also Kindergarten aide. We’re so blessed to have her serving here with us!
