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. Jeff Eavenson, a retired DPS officer, is our Vice President while Vivian May, a retired hospital administrator, is our Financial Secretary. Faryn Seal, volunteer-extraordinaire, who uses her considerable talents in music, organization, decorating and more, serves as our Secretary. Yolanda Canaday, mentioned above, also serves on our Council, as does John May, a retired Navajo County Sheriff's Deputy and part-time rancher, who brings his considerable experience and skills to the table. Barbara Justman, another of our charter members, serves as our sacristan, making sure our chancel is ready-for-worship. Retired Anglican priest Bob Maxwell is always ready to fill-in as needed in any number of capacities.
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!
