I came onboard as the Church Administrator in July 2006. I came to Pender from the American Red Cross where I spent five years in the Finance Department of the National Headquarters in Washington, DC. Prior to that, I worked for many years as the Director of Financial Planning and Analysis for Kaiser Permanente’s Mid-Atlantic States region in Rockville, MD. When I saw the announcement that the Church Administrator position was vacant, I felt strongly led to apply for it. God was leading me to leave the corporate world and use my business skills in ministry for Him.
I have been a member of Pender for 3 years and really enjoy being part of the music ministry and teaching third grade Sunday School. My husband Verne and daughter Laura are also active members of PUMC.
I know God is alive at Pender because...
...I see Him at work everyday in the hearts and lives of Pender people -- otherwise known as my Pender family. This family is an amazing group of people who love God and truly desire to worship Him, grow in Him and help to bring about our mission of making disciples for Him. It’s a place filled with JOY -- His Joy!
You should choose Pender...
...if you are looking for a warm, caring group of believers who enjoy each other, enjoy worshiping together and truly desire to live the Christian life to its fullest.
