Church Office Administrator
Brookside is thankful for Marty! Our office would an disorganized mess without her! Even though Marty and her husband, George, have been members of Brookside for over 20 years, it wasn't until recently that she joined the BCC staff. She works full time in the church office managing everything from events, to financial records, to website management. Marty and George have been married for 25 years and they have three busy teens.
