For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him, as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
former Minister for Women
Campus: All Campuses
Mary was raised in a religious home in Green Bay, Wisconsin, but had never heard a clear gospel message until the age of 24 (1977) while attending a women’s Bible study at Ft. Riley, Kansas. Upon receiving Christ, God placed in her heart a hunger and love for his Word and gave her many opportunities to study the Word as a young mother, raising her family.
Mary began teaching Precept Bible studies in 1984 and has been active in Women’s Ministries in churches all over the United States. She desires to equip women to spread a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ. She encourages women to embrace the great assurance and hope of their identity in Jesus Christ and to claim and enjoy satisfaction in him. Mary has a passion to teach women how to study the Word of God for themselves and to equip them to use the gifts God has given them for the work of ministry.
Mary is married to Jack, Pastor for Covenant Member Care, at Bethlehem. They have two grown sons: Josh, married to Maria, and living in Austin, Texas; and Jacob, living in Minneapolis. They are the proud grandparents of Caden and Chase, Josh & Maria's sons.
Mary retired in January 2016.
