This week we want to highlight two families that have meant so much to the launch of Connexus. It’s because of people like the Walker’s that we are able to be the kind of church that we invite our friends to. Thanks so much to all of our volunteers for working so hard to build a fantastic church for so many people. Although they have the same last name . . . they don’t think they are related!
Barrie: Tim & Stephanie Walker (& Dax!)
The first set of Walker’s today serve at our Barrie Campus. Tim serves as our team leader for our video team and provides excellent leadership to the team of people that generate excellent images every week for use at our Orillia campus and online. Stephanie serves as the team leader for our Security / Check-Team within our Family Ministry environments. Every week she ensures that parents feel great dropping of their kids within our environments and that all of the kids are safe and sound during our services. They also serve "above and beyond" by helping with lots of other stuff around Connexus during the week – like just yesterday they were helping us paint our new office! Don’t be fooled though . . . the real heroes of the Walker’s family is their dog Dax!
So today we name Tim and Stephanie "Wonderful and Willing Walkers!" for all their help in so many areas!
Orillia: Dave & Amanda Walker
This post could be so much longer than we have space here for. Dave & Amanda Walker serve Connexus in so many different ways. Dave serves as a part of our senior volunteer leadership team called the elders, he drives trucks for us Sunday morning, and provides so much support to us with help during the middle of the week. Amanda serves in leadership with our welcome team in Orillia, a small group leader with our student ministry and is always ready to help out with what ever needs assistance at Connexus. They also have provided us great office space within their home for the last 5 months! Their girls even let us set up our photocopier in their playroom! WOW! To put it simply . . . Connexus wouldn’t be what it is today without these Walkers!
To honour Dave & Amanda Walker we crown them "Prince and Princess Walker" for their royal treatment of everyone they interact with at Connexus!
