On Monday, August 24, Eliza started as our new ReCAST Kids Director.
I have been attending ReCAST for about a year now and have been active in the Young Adult Community group led by the Filceks. I recently earned my Associates Degree in business from Kellogg Community College and am starting online school this fall to earn my Bachelor’s Degree. I have previously spent summers serving in ministry at Camp Barakel (where I met Leah Kline – my connection to ReCAST!) and at Gull Lake Ministries. In my spare time I love to read, play music with friends, and travel when I can. I am very excited to see what God has in store for me as I step into this role, and for the opportunity to serve the families and kids of ReCAST.
On August 31, Erin will start as ReCAST’s new Office Administrator. Here’s a little bit about her…
I am married to Joe and we have been attending ReCAST since 2016. Our family consists of Kennedy (22), Patrick (19), Caelinn (17 in 2 weeks), Griffin (16), and Will (12) along with our dog, Kosar. I was previously employed by Portage Public Schools as a work-based learning coach and math support parapro. I love traveling and attending sporting events, especially WMU hockey and the Cleveland Browns. This year for my birthday, I ran my first half-marathon. I am excited to get started at ReCAST and look forward to helping to keep things organized.
Hope has been the office clerk at ReCAST since May 2017, and will begin transitioning into her new role as ReCAST’s Communications Director on Monday, August 24.
My family and I have been attending ReCAST Church since 2011. You might see me at church with a “tall dude” – that’s my boyfriend, Jason. We are both full-time students at Western Michigan University pursing degrees in Communication with minors in Business on track to graduate this year! In my free time I enjoy reading, listening to podcasts, and, on rare occasion, running. I’m excited to transition into this new role at ReCAST!
Linda has been the Administrative Assistant at ReCAST since 2016, and will be stepping down mid-September.
I’m Pastor Don’s wife and was a part of planting ReCAST Church in 2009! I’ve been an official part of the ReCAST staff for four years. I’ve really enjoyed working in the office and I’m excited to see God provide some great people to carry on the administrative work here as I step down. (I’ll still be around at ReCAST and plan to do lots of volunteering in various capacities!)
