Phyllis worked for the Social Security Administration for almost 40 years before retiring. She is honored to serve as an elder at New Springs where community outreach is a focus. She loves all the friends and how it feels like a family here. Her relationship with Christ gives her the comfort of knowing where she belongs and to whom she belongs. The two great commandments to love the Lord with all your might, mid and strength and love your neighbor as yourself are close to her heart and she is inspired by Psalm 23. Phyllis loves watching old westerns and playing with her grandson.
Patrick moved to Jackson County in 2003 when he married his wife, Pearle. Patrick is a clinical social worker and specializes in trauma and Indian Child Welfare. Patrick is an avid student of history, especially about people who have been oppressed; if we do not remember where we have been, we will surely return there and repeat the same mistakes. Patrick is a firm believer in social justice and equality for all, and he believes that this should never be conditional, as God’s love for us is never conditional.
