- I joined the Zion community last month as the new Facilities Coordinator. I wasn’t looking for a job but my mom, Sue Stensrud, continually mentioned the position opening for several months, knowing it would be a good fit for me. I have been blessed by the kindness and grace everyone here has shown me. From the staff to the volunteers and members, I have been welcomed with open arms. I have met so many new people who truly make Zion ...more
Started working at Zion in… 2020
Favorite thing about working at Zion… All of the Staff and Members are very welcoming and truly show that they work to live Zion’s motto of “With all we are and all we do we will Trust, Live and Serve Christ Jesus our Lord”
Committees and ministries I’m involved with… Property Committee
Favorite Bible verse… Isaiah 40:31. There are many interpretations of the verse but I believe that through all the trials and tribulations we face in our earthly lives, when we trust and hope in the Lord he will guide and see us through.
My family … My husband, Ryan, and I have been married for over 20 years and we have 5 amazing kids, Jacob, John, Jolie, Jameson and Jemma who range from elementary school all the way beyond high school. We have a small hobby farm outside of Monticello with dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, turkeys and more. They all keep us hopping!
When I’m not at Zion, you can find me… My family and I love to enjoy the outdoors whenever possible. You’ll find us fishing, hunting, attending sporting events, and volunteering at our kid’s school and extracurricular activities.
Something you might not know about me is… I know the firing order of a small block Chevy 350 engineAll Staff All Building Staff
