Rhonda is an Oregon native, growing up in the greater Portland area. She graduated from Willamette University in Salem, Oregon with a degree in Business and Speech Communications. God has led her through a variety of experiences from teaching Sunday School for Chinese children to living and teaching in Japan for two years. Throughout it all, God has brought children into her life and has grown in her a desire to see children live up to their potential and to learn how much fun it is to serve God.
She has attended Life Church since 1999 and from the beginning she served in children’s ministry. From teaching the 3’s-5’s class, then coordinating the Nursery for seven years, then God prompted her to move into KidsLive! ministries, our children’s program. As the Children’s Coordinator, she uses relevant teaching through interactive Bible stories and games to make KidsLive! Church an exciting place to be.
While in Salem, she met and married her friend, David. David and Rhonda have been married since 1999. They have two kids in the ministry, Zachary (2001) and Zoe (2002). They like to play family board games, camp and hike, as well as, enjoy a good movie together.
