Tell us about your family and where you are from…

I am from Southern California (an actual “Valley Girl”) but not necessarily proud of that :-). I was raised by wonderful Christian parents, I am the oldest of 3 girls.

I have been married to Rex Minor for 32 years and we have 3 adult children; Mallory, Paige and Trent. Paige is married to Jed Cato and they are expecting our first grandchild this July.

What made you join the Fellowship Housing Staff?

I have known about Fellowship Housing for many years, going back to my days as the Women’s Ministry Director at Willow Creek Community Church. I always loved what Fellowship Housing stands for and the amazing work that they are doing in the lives of single moms.

What are you most excited about in your new role? 

In the 20 years that I have been in vocational ministry, I have always gravitated toward family ministry. I’m thrilled to support the work of caring for single moms and their precious children. I am excited that I get to remind them that the God of the universe loves them, and wants them to live lives that are full of grace and freedom.

What are your dreams for Fellowship Housing?

I dream of a day when we can serve every single mom in our community— not just the community we currently serve, but communities that don’t have a  Fellowship Housing. I dream of  seeing all single moms fully independent, confident, succeeding, thriving as a mom and growing as a woman of God.

Part of my role is to come alongside those who want to make a difference with their resources, and become a part of this great Fellowship Housing story. I can’t wait to hear and see all that is ahead for all of us!
