In her down time, she loves to organize and decorate her home, and enjoys a good comedic movie. As a young woman, Lisa realized that one of her giftings is working with children! After some attempts at in the traditional office setting, she found herself drawn back to children. In her 22+ years of child care history, she has worked as an educational assistant, a preschool teacher, a tutor, and a nanny. Her favorite part of working with children at Discover, is that she gets to teach the word of Jesus! Lisa believes that children are ground-breakers for the kingdom of Christ, and that they have an important role in this world! She is grateful to be able to help guide and equip them as they grow into that role. It is her goal to accept every child that finds their way into our Nursery or Kids' Church and see each one as the precious child of God that they are.

Discover Community Church is a place where the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:27) will be encouraged* and equipped to use our spiritual gifts (1 Cor 12:7) in order to actively care for our neighboring community, and to be doers of the word, and not merely hearers. (James 1:22) * Encouraged by witnessing the fruit of local outreach first-hand. Equipped by the ongoing study of the Word to hear His direction.
