Why have you joined the WOCC board?

Tell us about your run for Elida school board.

 “In May of this year after attending one of our School Board meetings for the Elida Local Schools I was appalled at the Elida Local Schools allowing Biological Male or Female students to use the bathroom of their choice based upon their sexual identity.  Genesis 1:27 states, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”  God’s word is very clear in that there are only 2 genders Male & Female.  Anyone who states that they do not identify with their biological sex is mocking God.  Our Local School Board and Administration have violated the rights of all students by allowing this Bathroom Policy and have turned a blind eye to the community and voting constituents of the Elida Local School District.  After thoughtful prayer I decided that God was calling me to run for the school.  I am trusting that God will direct and guide my steps along this path.”

What are your thoughts/feelings on how the WOCC impacts kingdom commerce and our communities?

 “I believe the WOCC impacts Kingdom commerce in the local community by bringing Christian business owners together to learn first from each other by interacting with fellow Christians.  Sometimes we may think we are the only ones experiencing problems in our business life or maybe within our personal lives however, when we get together with like-minded men and women who share the same Christian beliefs and interact and fellowship together, we realize we are not alone and can share and help each other.”
