In August of 2006, in the back corner of C3's sanctuary, Maria & her husband Dave came to know God. And that's where their story really begins. They were married in November, and later Maria received a call to children’s ministry from the Lord. Over the years God has worked very deliberately in Maria's life, in moving her to Wisconsin from her birthplace in Hartford, Connecticut, then to Park Falls, Wisconsin, and then back to Washburn in preparation for pastoral ministry at C3.
Maria has served in various ministry roles: Mpact Girls Club Coordinator, Rainbows Club Coordinator, Sunday School Teacher, Watch the Lamb (our Easter musical drama) Director, and Christian Education Director. Maria is enrolled in the Wisconsin-Northern Michigan District School of Ministry to pursue her ministerial credentials with the Assemblies of God USA.
Dave & Maria have five children: Alex, Nate, Alyssa, Stephen, and Josiah. They are your typical Wisconsin family. They greatly enjoy hunting, fishing, and camping. They love the Packers, as well as watching and playing most other sports. They love being outside unless it's over 80 degrees, which is why Dave won't leave Wisconsin!
Maria looks forward to many years of serving C3 and our local communities. She is very excited to engage with and love on the kids of our region!
