Being a task oriented person, Susie truly enjoys the on-going administrative tasks and responsibilities that successfully accomplish the vision of leading people (children too!) in the adventure of becoming like Christ. Children’s Ministry is her sweet spot and she considers it a blessing to be able to provide the organization and support to both the staff and volunteers in this department.
Susie is a mother of two daughters: Jennifer and Julie, a grandmother of seven: Samantha, Gabriella, Cristian, Mariana, Chase, Lance, and Brody. In her free time, Susie loves to read, loves studying God’s Word, and loves savoring art appreciation through creativity. She also treasures her “family time” with sisters, nieces, nephews and creating fun ways to celebrate the family whenever possible.
Because of a loving Aunt who faithfully took her to church, Susie accepted Christ as her Savior when she was nine. Susie says that “it is grace that brought her to Open Door and it is the grace of God that keeps her here.” Her passion is to care and spend time with children to give them a sense of worth through the knowledge of God’s saving grace in Christ Jesus their Lord and Savior.
