– Where are you from?
This should be an easy one…but I have an adventuresome past! I grew up in central New Jersey. Rob and I met and married in Port Orange, Florida and we relocated to Johnstown by way of Atlanta, Georgia. God has used so many people to teach me more about Him in each place I’ve called home!!
– Tell a little about your family and life
Rob and I got married in 2009. We’ve had tons of adventures together already… And it seems like the Lord will use us in ways we don’t expect where ever He grows us in different seasons. Our short stories are as follows: Rob is a landscaper and a preacher. I’m a pastry cook and teacher. Rob loves God’s word and is really adept at explaining the intricacies of it. I have a real passion for teaching families how to prepare simple, nourishing meals so that folks can serve Jesus more and better with their whole-selves–mind, body, and spirit. Rob also captures glimpses of God’s work in photos, and I have been known to make a crazy project out of found materials, especially when young people are involved. Rob currently serves God as pastor of Pleasand Hill Church of the brethren and as a landscaper with Stuver’s Riverside Nursery. I serve here at Kaufman Mennonite as a Youth Leader and with New Day Ministries as a cook and after-school program leader. I bake for fun and for extra income when God provides opportunities.

– What do you enjoy the most about working at KMC?
I love how the leadership here is encouraging but does not micromanage.
– Who is a hero of yours?
Magda and Charlie–Hungarian immigrants and friends from our Port Orange, FL church. Knowing their story of escape from persecution and what Jesus has done through them boggles my mind.
