Mary is originally from Detroit, Michigan, and arrived in Lima in 1982 when her husband, Ken, accepted a job transfer to work at the Lima Army Tank Plant. Soon after coming to Lima and joining the church, Mary was asked to serve in the office as a volunteer to help Pastor Jerry Benge. She has since served as a staff secretary, church clerk, mission secretary and most recently, as Office Manager and Financial Secretary/Business Administrator.
Mary was saved as an adult at the age of 26 and experienced the life-transforming change that only salvation brings. She is thankful for the opportunity God has provided to serve our church along with our pastors, support staff, deacons and church family.
She and her husband, Ken, have been married for 39 years and have a son, Jon, and daughter-in-law, Kendra.
