Church Secretary & Office Administrator
Valerie has been a part of the Desperation Church family since the very beginning. She has served on the Admin Board, worked in kid’s ministries and currently serves on the Women’s Council. Valerie is the church’s secretary and office administrator. She came on staff in September of 2011 and is the first point of contact when a person calls or stops by the church office.
DC Student Ministries Administrator
People look up to Zach – partly because he’s taller than most of us – but also because he is passionate about Jesus and people. He believes community is the key to discipleship and that’s why you’ll always find him connecting and serving with others. When he’s not hanging with our students at The Point, Zach is usually hanging with his wife Beth and their 4 kidlets or dreaming up ways to make musical noises.
DC Children's Ministry Administrator
Beth loves kids. How do we know? She has her own set of 4! Beth’s love for children, however, goes far beyond her own tribe. She is passionate about helping all children discover who God created them to be, and being able to encourage and teach them along their journeys. She does this through scheduling, training and coordinating the hub of activity known as The DC Kid’s Ministry. When Beth isn’t working with kids, she helps her husband Zach with Student Ministries at The Point.
Ashley is Desperation Church’s Treasurer. She works hard to keep everything organized in the financial department. When she’s not balancing books, she’s pouring into the lives of teenagers as a youth ministry volunteer with her husband Josh.
Cappie is the man when it comes to moving, fixing, hanging, and directing all of the nuts and bolts and other operational elements that it takes to run a church. Cappie also heads up our volunteer "Clean Team." If you hear a ukulele in the distance, it's probably Cappie.
