I’m Susan and GPBC has been my church family for over 32 years. I was born and raised right here in the city, and I love so many things about Portland! Portland’s identity and culture has provided many opportunities for fun and to share my life with others.
In 1977, I married my high school sweetheart, and we have three amazing children and three grandchildren. I’m a social worker, so people and families are where I love to invest my time. I love to be able to be helpful when people have needs, both within our church and in my job.
Here at GPBC, I am currently serving in Women’s Ministry. Nothing is more exciting than to see women connect with each other and with Jesus. Our purpose is to provide women opportunities to grow more deeply in their relationship with Jesus and have fun and meaningful connections along the way. Our church has many opportunities to serve together and to build friendship, so we have fun creating some of those opportunities within Women’s Ministry.
I am thankful that Jesus got a hold of my life many years ago and it is He that leads me each and every day. It’s been fun, scary, confusing, and fulfilling to trust Him, but I know He loves me and constantly surprises me with His plans for me!
Hobbies: Anything that includes my family and playing with my grandchildren; being outdoors which includes a bit of gardening, camping, and traveling.
