New staff welcomes a change to serve

Denise was looking for a change in her life when her shoulder was tapped to apply for this position. She wanted to work in a place where she could serve others. She was encouraged by the opportunity to work with Franconia Conference in bookkeeping because of the possibility of service with her skills. “I felt like this role would allow me to serve the church and use the gifts I already have,” she explains.

Denise is also glad for the opportunity to be more involved with the Mennonite church and hopes to gain deeper understanding of what it means to be Mennonite. Denise lives in Souderton and is a member of Covenant Community Fellowship, Lansdale, PA. She and her husband Mark have two sons, Jordan and Evan.
