Staff and Board Directors
Chairman of the Board
Ross is the Chair of LOC's Board of Trustees and the pastor at Evermore Community Church. His favorite movie is The Passion of the Christ. He is passionate about serving because "The second greatest commandment is 'Love Your Neighbor'. Jesus calls us to go into our communities and love people in His Name. Love Our Community gives us the platform to do this. We can be the hands and feet of Jesus to those in our neighborhoods."
Secretary of the Board
Kathleen is the Secretary of the Board. Her favorite movie is The Wizard of Oz. At this stage of her life, Kathleen wants to be involved in a local organization that gives back to others in the community. "Love Our Community is the perfect fit...neighbors supporting neighbors."
Treasurer of the Board
Howard is the Treasurer of the Board. His favorite movie is The Shack. His personal goal is to make a positive difference in the lives of others. Howard believes Love Our Community fits his mission.
Dale is a LOC Trustee. Dale’s favourite movie is Shawshank Redemption. He cares about Love Our Community because he thinks we all need a second chance and help in times of difficulties. LOC is able to do that. In his work at the FISH Food Pantry he saw many people struggling through life and some only need a hand up to begin anew. Dale's favorite quote is "Only by the Grace of God go I."
