Susan grew up in Killeen TX, where she met her husband Glynn. Glynn's military career took them to Germany, Hawaii, Alabama and Tennessee. Along the way they had three beautiful daughters, Alex, Nikki and Maddie. Alex is a recent graduate from Lee University and Nikki is currently in her last semester at Lee University. Maddie is a senior at Christian Academy of Knoxville.
After spending 13 years homeschooling her daughters, God led Susan to the next chapter of her life - 150 elementary school kids! She loves their smiles, energy and innocence, and most importantly, their eagerness to learn more about Jesus.

Children's Ministry Director for 4th and 5th Grade
Angie and her husband, David, started coming to 2RC in 2001. Angie wasted no time in getting involved and was the Service Coordinator in Children’s Ministry as well as serving in the baby and toddler room and on the Dive In Worship team. Angie most enjoyed watching the kids engage in worship and truly understand what worship means.
Angie worked in the legal field for over 15 years. Two years ago, she and David began the Dave Ramsey program and in less than 18 months they were debt free (except for their house). Angie began in the fall of 2012 as Pier 45 Director.
Angie is very excited about investing time and partnering with the families of the 4th and 5th graders at 2RC. As the result of working in Dive-In for so many years, Angie has been able to watch the kids grow and now has the opportunity to continue to strengthen those relationships with the children and their families..
