Ronda Deane, Office Ministry

The friendly voice on the phone and welcoming person in the office is Ronda Deane. Ronda was born in the San Diego area and lived there, until she met and married Scott in 1982. They have lived in California, Arizona and Washington, but while on vacation one year they fell in love with the Coeur d’Alene area and decided this was the place for their family to put down roots. She has 3 grown children, all in college (Christopher, Lauren & Shaun). We are blessed to have such a warm and skilled person in the church office.
