OPT for Success was created by trainers and consultants whose ministry in church and church-related offices has revealed the great need for training for those who serve as ministry support professionals. Each member of this group has years of experience in ministry office support and in training other ministry support professionals. We have now joined our individual efforts into a collective source of training and motivation for our peers.

Her areas of responsibilities include managing the business affairs of the church, coordinating the work of committees, serving as office manager and staff liaison for Women's Ministry, and assisting with pastoral duties. She teaches with enthusiasm and conviction because she believes strongly in the importance of the work of ministry support professionals.
