Valerie joined us in 2014 with a heart and passion to see God’s justice enacted in our community and the world. She is constantly speaking up within areas of injustice, connecting other people with opportunities to make an impact, and stirring a passion for prayer in all areas of ministry. Valerie intentionally waits on God and seeks his direction in her ministry and her family life. She loves taking road trips with her husband Brad and their teenagers, cranking the praise music up, and taking walks with their dog. She will tell you that one of the best gifts she ever received are braces which is evident in how she loves to smile.
