Ministry: Linda loves people. She cherishes engagement with our congregation at the sacred intersections of life, illness, death, vulnerability, crisis, loss, the celebrations of special moments of new discoveries in walking with God, or exploring meaning and purpose in life story experiences. Linda’s days are filled with phone calls, home visits, Zoom prayer meetings, Sabbath School classes, involvement in the inter-church Golden Buckeyes, educational opportunities, visitation team organization and support, networking with the leaders of the various ministries and community, as needs arise.
History/Family: Linda and her husband, Jerry blended their families after losing their beloved previous spouses. That blend gave them three sons, their spouses, and eight grandchildren. Jerry encourages and strengthens Linda's ministry: “We share in love for God, family, and ministry.”
Hobbies: Linda enjoys travel, visiting family stretched out from coast to coast, as well as nature, piano, learning about floral design, walking, and swimming. She is also currently enjoying learning social media skills. “My first hashtag, if I can get beyond Facebook, might say, ‘Finally, a hashtag!’”
