Director of Children’s Ministries
Susan has attended Blacks Harbour Wesleyan since July 2010, along with her husband, Mark, and three children, Grace, Aiden, and Leah. For many years she was a stay-at-home mom and homeschooled her three children. Currently, Susan works as an operator at the local papermill. Between her and her husband they have served His Church in full-time, part-time, and in laymen roles, and enjoy doing so in any capacity God calls them to.
Susan grew up on a dairy farm in smalltown, Mooers, NY, attending Mooers Wesleyan Church. She committed her life to Christ at the age of six. Susan has worked in children’s ministry since she herself was in kid’s ministry. She believes in the importance of knowing the grace and love of Jesus at an early age and also personally knowing their Creator and who He has created them to be.
Susan enjoys spending time with family, near and far, going for walks, and having coffee with friends. She likes playing games, having fun, and some healthy competition. Susan enjoys singing and dancing praise to Jesus, even though she can’t do either (her own words).
