Kathryn Leo

I am a mother of three terrific children, and we took many road trips while they were growing up that involved camping and hiking. My  son thinks the best vacations were the ones where “the only plan is–there is no plan” because of the unexpected adventures we experienced.  I am a middle school teacher, and in my spare time I enjoy biking, reading, traveling walking and gardening.

Alisa Hall

I am a mother of 2 awesome teen-aged boys and a sweet 6 year old girl.  One of my biggest passions is investing in teenagers as a youth group leader.  I love to help teenagers see their potential and worth and that they are loved and valued.

Brian Rose

My wife and I get the incredible honor of parenting 6 amazing kids together. I’m passionate about Jesus, our family, the Church, and sports. One of the things we love most about our lives together is helping people in any way we can.
