It has been four years now that I have been working for Rehoboth as part of the Advancement Team. I recently became the Director of Advancement after two years as the Assistant Director and I enjoy being a part of the administrative team as we seek God’s leading and direction for growing His ministry. While I primarily have been developing relationship in the western region for the past 3 years, I look forward to meeting many supporters who have faithfully blessed Rehoboth in the Midwest and eastern regions. It has been a blessing for me to become friends and be encouraged by so many Christ-following supporters in the past 4 years.
My wife, Sarah, and our four kids live on campus at Rehoboth where the kids all attend school. We moved here to Rehoboth about 3 years ago from Central California. I graduated from Calvin College way back in 2000.

My husband and I, along with our youngest daughter Laura Jo, moved to Rehoboth in 1994. Chuck taught for 16 years in the mid-school, Laura Jo graduated from the high-school, and I worked in and around the Navajo reservation for sixteen years, teaching early childhood education, co-coordinating a Parents As Teachers program with Rehoboth Hospital and Gallup Schools, ending my teaching career teaching Navajo students at the University of New Mexico. I served on an early childhood committee at Rehoboth in 2005-7, focusing on starting a PreK program so the students would enter kindergarten ready to learn. The dream was finally realized in 2008 when it opened using funds from the Chris Johnson Memorial set up when our son was killed in Iraq in 2007. Chris is buried in Rehoboth Cemetery and his picture in the hallway is often saluted by the preschool students as they come in from recess. I have a passion for Rehoboth and want to advance the cause of the diverse, rigorous, Christian education the students receive here, from PreK to graduation. God has brought a blessing to this school out of our tragedy and I want to serve Him and Rehoboth by strengthening relationships and commitments to RCS in our churches.
I currently live in Holland, Michigan, and I am visiting the churches in the mid-west. To contact Mary about giving to Rehoboth or to schedule a church visit, please call 505-870-2454.
