Julie joined our team in 1997 after attending Port Naz for several years. She brings her expertise in leadership and organizational strategy to the church as well as her desire to support people in being transformed by Jesus Christ. An avid reader, she has found her niche in administration and human resource development and continues to promote those areas of ministry within our church. She has also pioneered our Gallup Strengths initiatives, and has partnered with our denomination to serve in several areas of leadership. Julie has lived pretty much everywhere in her life, including several locations abroad, so she offers a wealth of culture to our team. When the sun is shining, she and her husband, Jim, might be found riding the area on their Harley. They have raised their two sons and are enjoying growing old together.
