When did you start coming to Canyon Springs?


What made you decide to Volunteer?

Once we became involved in a small group, we really started to feel like Canyon Springs was a part of our family. Volunteering brought us closer to others at Canyon Springs and allowed us to feel more connected as a community. That has become invaluable to our family. We have the best village ever!

What is your favorite part about Volunteering?

We don’t always set a perfect example for our children, but being involved with the church is something our children will grow up in. We have met several amazing young men and women throughout the church’s OASIS Youth Ministry. We have worked side by side at AWANA, Sunday School, and also places like Haiti and Mexico. These young men and women are such excellent role models for our kids, that we want them around our kids as often as possible. The parents of our youth should be very proud!

Do you volunteer with organizations, outside of Canyon Springs

Yes. Lea has volunteered as a Cardiac Nurse for open heart surgeries in Honduras and is eager to do the same in Haiti.
