Dave Hooper completed his fall internship on our staff in early December. During his three months with us Dave worked with compassion ministries, adult education, leading a Growth Group, and strategic planning. He sat in on our elder board meetings. He also did a variety of other assignments. Dave has strong gifts in theology and strategic thinking. He and Libby will continue to be part of our congregation for the foreseeable future while he pursues a Ph.D. Their hope is to eventually be involved with missions—he in education, Libby in medicine.
