The essentials: I am a born and raised Southern California girl, (and yes, I did surf and work at Disneyland!) My husband and I recently moved to Idaho, where all three of our adult children (and five grandchildren) live. I have been married to my best friend, Bill, for almost 38 years. We committed to do life and Kingdom ministry together, which has brought me joy and fulfillment beyond measure. We planted several churches on the east and west coasts, and landed in Redding, CA in 1995, where we pastored a church there for 20 years. We have a call and history of equipping the next generation of leaders in different ways and through different seasons: through a ministry school that we designed, mentoring church planters and just spending lots of time drinking lots of coffee with them, as we challenge them and give them opportunities to be Kingdom leaders.
In 2014, my husband and I became full-time missionaries with Novo (previously called CRM), where we coach, equip, train and shepherd leaders and teams inside and outside Novo, to make disciples from among the harvest resulting in new expressions of church all over the world. I am grateful and humbled to be living out the dream God gave me many years ago.When it comes to Uncharted: I am honored to be asked to serve Ben & Kathy as a board member of Uncharted. Bill & I love the Stewarts and are excited to serve this vital ministry in this season of our lives.Things I love most:TravelingDiscovering and exploring new cities through walkingMy family, especially my crazy grandkids (Bostyn, Griffin, Saylor, Ezekiel, and Ezra - ranging from 18 months - 9 years old!)CoffeeThe beachCreating good things to eat (I love to cook!)Trying new foods in new cultures
