Director of Worship Ministries
I was born in Newark, NY. I lived there until I left for college in 1996.
In 1996 I enrolled at Indiana Wesleyan University. It was during my junior year that I really met Christ and decided that I was meant for full time ministry. I graduated in 2000 with a Church Music and Applied Voice major. I also met my husband, Michael Hofer at IWU and we were married in 2000. We have 2 amazing kids, Tymothy and Alexandria.
I have been in ministry along with my husband, Michael, in a spouse role for over 20 years. I have been leading the Worship ministry in our Youth department wherever we have been. Just this year in 2021 I was hired as Worship Director here at Christ Community Church. I enjoy MUSIC – all of it! I also enjoy reading when I have the time. Sometimes you will even see me put on a bowling jersey and participate in tournament play.
