Other than the pastor, all leadership positions at Peace Lutheran Church are voluntary--but what quality folks we have in various capacities!
Our worship accompanist (piano/organ), Yolanda Canaday, is second-to-none. During the week, Yolanda travels to Flagstaff, where she provides piano accompaniment for NAU's choirs and music majors. How blessed we are to have a musician of such high caliber as Yolanda!
Our Church Council President is Del Novell, a middle school teacher of industrial technology, who also serves as the athletic director for the Holbrook Middle School. Del's wife, Ginny Novell--herself a technology instructor at Holbrook High--serves very capably as our Treasurer. John May, a retired Navajo County sheriff's deputy, is our Vice President and his wife, Vivian May, a retired hospital administrator, is our Financial Secretary. Yolanda Canaday, mentioned above, serves as our Secretary. Mary Johnson brings her skills as a retired educator, administrator and multi-cultural specialist to the table and Mitch Ross, a professional musician, assists with worship as well as lending his hand to any number of building-related tasks. Karen Ross directs our new prayer ministry. Barbara Justman, another of our charter members, serves as our sacristan, making sure our chancel is ready-for-worship.
All of our other members, as the need arises, step up-to-the-plate to provide leadership and assistance. We are family here at Peace--and all family members play an important part!
