I am the contact person (the dashing, daring, and digitally savvy director) for our youth department. I love the small group atmosphere on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights, as well as the ridiculousness that comes about at movie nights, retreats, all-nighters, and other gatherings. When I’m not moonlighting with our youth, I spend much of my time practicing snappy comebacks with the students in my 7th grade language arts classroom. I enjoy reading (although I don’t do it as much as a language arts teacher probably should), sitting around a fire pit with close friends, traveling to places I’ve never been, and long walks on the beach.
Darren & Marrisa Rice
Family Ministry Directors
Hello! We are Darren and Marissa Rice. We are the proud parents 5 beautiful children. God has given us a commissioning to follow Joshua 24:15, “As for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.” Our passion to encourage our household to pursue Christ is the foundation of our family. This is why we feel so impressed upon to develop our family ministry at the Chapel core mission to be: Building Households that SERVE THE LORD! As family ministry leads we want to communicate the importance of the word HOUSEHOLDS, we believe that children play a HUGE part of households and as parents we are committed to discipline them to the Glory of God. As we mentioned though households include not just the kiddos, but also the parents, singles, marrieds, visitors in our home, those we mentor, and walk alongside in life. We are passionate about bringing all those areas into the furthering our relationship with God and the Kingdom. We are also passionate about spending time with those in our biblical community, we have an open door and LOVE to cook for people! We both enjoy music, good food, playing games, sports, and staying up late having good conversations with our friends and family! Lets connect and walk this journey together as a team!
