SEND Staff Transitions: Goodbye also means Hello

By the end of August the SEND Ministries Department will have said goodbye to two staff members while welcoming two new ones. It’s with sadness that we will say goodbye to Carmal Hendren, assistant director of the department, and Karen Yoder, administrative assistant. Both have contributed significantly to the SEND Department and have impacted the lives of numerous young people. Carmal has served for over eight years as assistant director, while Karen has served over five years as administrative assistant. We wish them God’s richest blessing in the next chapter of their lives!

We’re grateful that those goodbyes are accompanied by hellos as we welcome new staff members to step into those roles. We welcome Ashley Koppenhaver as the new administrative assistant. Ashley hails from Houston, Delaware and will begin her role as administrative assistant on July 15. Ashley’s no stranger to the department having been a member of the 2007 Thailand REACH team.

We also welcome Courtney Miller as assistant director beginning August 19. Courtney’s roots are in Hutchinson, Kansas but she’s been in central Ohio the last several years having served on the 2008 Madagascar REACH team, served as prayer coordinator at the RIC in 2010, led the 2010 South Asia REACH team, and most recently served on staff at Rosedale Bible College as the women’s dorm Resident Assistant.
