    I love this church and its mission! It is full of grace and love and is an awesome place to find and grow a relationship with Jesus. My husband Joe and I have been members of Outlook since 1991.

    Joe and I met in high school. We grew up on the eastside of Indianapolis and never left. We have been married for 40 years. We’ve been blessed with a son, a daughter, and two granddaughters whom we are fortunate to see frequently.

    I graduated from Ball Sate with a degree in elementary education but never taught in the classroom environment. After graduation, I interviewed for a position in the group insurance administration field, got hooked, and never left - there is a pattern here! It is a joy to serve others whether it is at work, at home, or in my church.

    After graduating from Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1969, my wife, Marcia, and I served many years in pioneering and establishing new churches. We have been married 53 years, raised four children and have nine grandchildren. One nine year old grandchild lives with us.

    It has been our joy and privilege to have been a members of Outlook since 2001. We have been richly blessed by the ministry here. We currently serve as life group leaders in the Fort Benjamin Harrison area, meeting every other Tuesday. We still have room for new people who want to get connected with other believers and grow in their spiritual life.

    During the week I train healthcare workers on how to work with children and adults who have special needs. Our calling is in teaching and training Christian workers.

    (recommended to serve his second three-year term)

    I have been married to Jayme since 1988 and we have two children, Justin and Katelyn. We have been members of Outlook since 2009. Jayme and I have both been involved with the community outreach team at Outlook, and I have been privileged to serve as an elder since 2014.

    My time spent in Papua New Guinea with my missionary parents is an important part of my heritage. My work as a partner in a Greenfield law firm provides me with meaningful opportunities to minister to people. I also enjoy reading, photography, woodworking, and working with stained glass.

    (recommended to serve her first three-year term)

    I am an Indiana native and love our varied and surprising seasons. In a spiritual sense, I love the varied and surprising seasons of life as well. I am passionate in the pursuit of knowing and serving Christ and making Him known to others.

    I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Jeff, for 41 years. We were baptized together at East 38th Street Christian Church in 1974 and have served there as well as Community Christian Church. We have been members at Outlook since 1999. We have been privileged to serve in many capacities at Outlook and count it an honor to continue to do so.

    We are parents to three grown children, Emily (and son-in-law Matt), Katie, and Andy. I work as an academic librarian at Ivy Tech Community College, Lawrence campus.
