Foothills Church welcomes Brenda Gesher as the new Office Assistant. Brenda shares her story of growing up and raising a family in this community.

I was born and raised right here in this community and have lived here all my life. I always thought I’d move one day, but why? I love where I live! I’m a country girl at heart.

My husband Todd also grew up locally, and we will soon be celebrating 30 years of marriage. Together we have raised four children, Nikki, Tara, Jackson and Charlie. Not counting our two dogs, we are now empty nesters. At last!  Together we like to run, travel (sometimes we combine those two things) hang out with our adult kids, play pinochle, and spend summer time on the lake. As for me, I also like to paint, spend way too much time planning my next travel adventure and dreaming of what’s next.

I grew up attending church locally and I always believed in God and that Jesus is who He said He is. But it wasn’t until my late 20’s that I came into understanding about His grace and what it means to be in relationship with Him. His word became alive to me and I grew in understanding. There is still plenty of room for growth and thankfully he’s still growing me. Foothills has been our home church since 2005.

I’m excited taking on this role as Office Assistant at Foothills. I have spent the last 23+ years being a full time stay at home mom, and part-time school and/or church volunteer. When Tyler asked me why do I want to work here, at Foothills, my answer was, “I love Foothills; I love the people here; this is my home and I am personally invested in the future of Foothills”. It’s more than just a job. I am eager to serve using the skills I have been given. It’s really a natural progression of what I have already been doing.
