Susan grew up in our church and worked with youth here in Santa Clara Valley while pursuing a career in marketing. In 1995 she responded to God’s tug on her heart by joining a newly forming team of youth workers in Poland. In the twenty years since then she has touched the lives not only of thousands of youth but also their leaders. She has con- ducted many training seminars around the globe and this past year returned home to San Jose to further her outreach of God’s love. Now full-time on our church staff, she directs our compassion ministry off the Hill in San Jose and outreach around the world, as well as overseeing congregational care.
