What do you do here at actionchurch?
- I book the bands, run sound, and basically I’m Josiah’s secretary.
How did you first get involved?
- I’ve been coming to actionchurch on and off since the beginning. After a while, I left my old church and started to come here on a regular basis. They were begging people to run sound, so i told them that I can and they put me to work right away.

Is there anything quirky about you?
- I don’t really think so. I’m kind of a bland person.
Has Josiah made you cry?
- Josiah’s never made me cry. I know that he’s just being mean to be mean. He’s just lonely and needs a hug. So, if you see him, go give him a hug. His being mean is a cry for help.
What is the most memorable moment you have of Pastor Don?
- Probably the time when the band didn’t e-mail us the lyrics. Don was freaking out that they weren’t going to make it. I know that it would be fine and they would show up, but he was freaking out.
How has actionchurch changed you?
