What Ministry / Group do you Volunteer With?

AWANA, Hospitality, Worship Team

When did you start coming to Canyon Springs?


What made you decide to Volunteer?

I started by helping out with Kid City one or two Sundays over the summer. During Lyla’s first year at AWANA I would drop her off, drive home, wait 30 minutes, and then drive back to pick her up. The next year I decided I might as well stay and help out! Last year Blake was looking for hospitality volunteer so I decided to join the team. I started playing with the worship band because it’s fun jamming with the talented musicians at Canyon Springs!

What is your favorite part about Volunteering?

It’s great when our whole family helps out. Sometimes Chelsea is volunteering at Kid City and I’m doing hospitality, so our kids either help out in the classroom or stand with me and greet at the door. Lyla and Emmy perfected their lemonade-stirring technique thanks to the patient instruction of veteran hospitality crew members like Nicole Anderson.

Anywhere with outdoor seating, especially by the ocean.

What is an interesting fact about you?

I have TERRIBLE vision but the Navy let me fly airplanes as long as I always kept an extra pair of glasses in my pocket. I once did a coordinated unicycle routine set to music with nine other people for a high school talent show.

Final Remarks/Comments:

Volunteering at Canyon Springs has been fantastic! I never knew there were so many dedicated and hard-working people that went to church here, and it’s been super fun getting to know them.

Thank you Dave for your serving heart!
