She is excited to give back to a ministry that encourages others so well and excited to deepen her relationship with moms and Jesus in the meantime. Sarah lives in Arvada with her husband Chris and her two girls Hannah (5) and Rosalie (2).
Dayna is our Hospitality Leader. She has loved her time in MOPS having consistently watched God change and touch the lives of the women brought through the doors at each meeting. As a result, she gives back week in and week out. Her gifts in creating a welcoming, warm, growth-fostering environment are seen evidently in her role as hospitality leader. Dayna loves Jesus, the outdoors, her husband of 15 years Adam, and the home they've built in Wheat Ridge with their two precious children Ezekiel (9) and Miriam (5). She cherishes the opportunity to serve and welcome each of the MOPS Mamas.
Amy is our hospitality co-lead. She works closely with Dayna to develop and implement an environment that is welcoming and warm, beautiful and thoughtful. She joined the steering team with the desire to deepen friendships and impact lives for the better knowing that by providing a caring environment at MOPS, Moms AND their children will benefit.

Veronica researches and provides the service opportunities we participate in while helping create an environment where members can see their impact in and outside of MOPS meetings. Her heart for outreach comes from time served in missions where her life-long faith in Jesus became her own. Veronica joined the Arvada steering team because the idea of it terrified her and she's refusing to allow fear to rule her life. She hopes that this rubs off on the women brought to MOPS this year. She lives in Arvada with her husband Ryan and two children Ellyse (5) and Macklin (3).
Marissa is our MOPS Outreach Co-Coordinator, she works hard at providing service opportunities for our mommas to bless those in the community and those within our walls. Marissa has a heart for our God Behind Bars ministry as evidenced by this role and following the call to volunteer at the GBB Women's Correctional facility outside of her time at MOPS. Marissa joined the steering team as a way to build deepening friendships and to follow God into a season of growth she may have been tempted to shy away from otherwise. She is thrilled to see what the Lord will be doing this year as he continues to equip those He calls in and outside of MOPS. Marissa lives in Denver with her husband Hudson and daughter Banner truth (14 mos.)
Andrea is our Events Coordinator and what a perfect role for her! Andrea thrives in the type-A world of organizing, creating and overseeing even when it only relates to her own life and we are so grateful for her service to MOPS in this capacity. Andrea is in charge of creating and organizing MOPS events such as play dates, Christmas parties, and any other "extra-curricular" MOPS events that take place. Andrea jumped at the opportunity to serve as Events Coordinator because she has a passion for creating opportunities for Moms to connect, which is something she looks forward to at every meeting.
