I placed my faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior in 1971 during the Jesus Movement at a Calvary Chapel Maranatha concert in the Long Beach Auditorium in Southern California. Several high school friends had been reaching out to me, inviting me to concerts, Bible studies and various Christian events. These Christian brothers took me under their wing and discipled me in Christ. We began daily Bible studies at lunchtime at Downey High School and soon we were gathering in weekly home Bible studies. Since my conversion I felt a call to serve the Lord in ministry and looked for every opportunity to be used by Him. i.e. witnessing, leading worship, discipling new believers, etc. After serving the Lord over 10 years doing everything from Sunday school to convalescent ministry; my pastor (Pastor Jeff Johnson) invited me to join the pastoral staff at Calvary Chapel Downey where I served as an assistant pastor for over 20 years. After that I served the Lord for 7 years at Calvary Chapel Boise as an assistant pastor. In May of 2011 the Lord blessed the humble beginnings of our new Calvary Chapel Eagle church plant where I now serve as senior pastor.
“Here I am, Lord, send me.” Isaiah 6:8
Today I find myself in somewhat of an unusual and peculiar place and yet exciting and adventurous all at the same time. I have a new work and a new direction in my life. One thing I am sure of is my love to minister and mentor women seeking to grow in their faith as a devoted disciple of Jesus is as strong as it has always been. The need for this type of ministry is enormous. My desire is to travel and attend Pastor’s Wives Conferences, Women’s Retreats, Leadership Conferences, Outreaches, Events and Teas to share the need for Agape’ love, how to apply the Word of God in our daily lives, fellowship, prayer and the need for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
I especially have a heart to come along side, instruct and equip Pastor’s Wives in their unique ministry. As a Pastor’s Wife, our role is to support our husband’s ministry. This is vital! However, this becomes impossible without having a clear understanding of what that role entails. As for myself, I had the awesome privilege of being mentored under Kay Smith, the wife of Pastor Chuck Smith. But, for the most part it was a, learn as you go process. I have been a faithful partner, helpmate and support to my husband. My children and grandchildren rise up and call me “Blessed!” I have loved and served my church family with great delight. As Kay Smith taught us, “Love the Lord, love your husband & children and love the people in your church.”
In addition, I have always felt the need and considered it a privilege to instruct the women to become servant leaders and to use their gifts as God has enabled. These are the things and so many more that need to be taught to the new generation of Calvary Chapel women.
As being a Pastor’s Wife for over 40 years, having served on Kay Smith’s Board for over 35 years, spoken at hundreds of retreats and events, ladies Bible Studies and prayer meetings at Calvary Chapel South Bay and other places, I do feel qualified and equipped to pass on what I have learned to others. I am 100% a Calvary Chapel gal, I am 100% sold out to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I desire and feel compelled to continue the work God started in me 44 years ago. Maranatha!
