Hi, I’m Cara! I started working at GPBC in 2005 as a temporary, part-time receptionist. Little did I know I would still be here 11 years later! In that time I’ve been a receptionist, an administrative assistant for Children’s Ministry, and my current role of Office Manager. I spend my days at work keeping our office in tip top shape, which means something different every day! One day it’s posting updates to our website and Facebook page, another it’s taking care of HR tasks like employee benefits, and another it’s working to keep our membership database current. Every day is unique!
I was born and raised in Portland and started attending Greater Portland when I was in 2nd grade. My husband, Ryan, and I met when his family came to GPBC in 1986. We married in 1999 and have two boys – Colby (14) and Caden (10). We live in SE Portland, but make the trek over the bridge multiple times every week to our church home. Ryan and I work as a team in Children’s Ministry. We love working together to teach the kids about the Big God Story and how they are a part of his story today.
Outside of work I enjoy reading, cooking, and hanging out with friends and family. Although, I seem to spend the most time driving kids around and doing laundry. Ha ha!
