Ellen Thorvardson - Rental Coordinator & Custodian
Ellen has been Rental Coordinator for the last 9 years and the best part of my job has been meeting and working with a variety of people and church groups.
In particular, the conferences and concerts help me appreciate the many ways people worship the Lord.
I’ve enjoyed seeing couples getting married and being able to support them on their special day.
Every occasion is different and interesting.
