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. Jeff Eavenson brings his skills as a retired DPS officer, who is currently employed as a safety specialist at the APS Cholla Power Plant, to the table and Faryn Seal, volunteer-extraordinaire, uses her considerable talents in music, organization, decorating and more to assist our ministry in any number of ways. Caitlyn Keel directs our prayer ministry. 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!
