This week marks the end of an era. Vanessa Koppanyi (Lewis) will be moving on to a new job and finishing as our Administrator and Bookkeeper on Friday. Vanessa has served in our office since 2015. She began as a receptionist and administrator and in 2018 bookkeeper was added to her portfolio. Over the past 5 years Vanessa has served faithfully, with integrity and a smile. She has worked diligently, learned quickly and has never shied away from extending grace, hospitality and prayer to the many who have walked through our doors.
Thank you Vanessa! We wish you all the best in your new venture!
Andrew Chan will be taking over Administration and Bookkeeping responsibilities officially starting August 31.
We’re in the midst of a few big shifts in the office.
Lillian Poetker is retiring at the end of May. Lillian has been keeping our books in order since nearly day one. She has contributed welcome, wisdom, thoughtfulness, and attention to detail that has been a true gift to us all. Her week-day presence in the office will be missed. Lillian, congratulations on an exceptionally well done job. You’ve earned this!
Vanessa Lewis, our previous administrator, has been training to take over from Lillian. Vanessa will assume Bookkeeping duties while retaining some of her current administrative tasks. This hand-off will be complete by the end of May.
Lastly, we’d like to welcome Jessica Williams to the office team. Jessica will be working as our new receptionist in the office and will be responsible for managing communication, offering hospitality and welcome to those who contact the office, and assisting the bookkeeper among other duties. She began this past week. Welcome, Jessica!
