The Staff at MwC

As I approach the end of my last week at Ministry with Community, I have to admit it’s getting a little emotional.  This place is truly special and will always have a big spot in my heart.  For nearly a decade it has been my pleasure and honor to work with the most amazing people – members, volunteers, staff, and donors.  Thank you to all of you for the many ways you support Ministry’s important work.  Thank you, also, for making my time here so remarkable and rewarding.   — Rob Oakleaf
