Kathy Ochs Clearinghouse Coordinator  email


On May 1, 2003, Serve Wenatchee Valley hired a valuable addition to our ministry…Kathy Ochs. Kathy is a native of Wenatchee, and brings years of community service experience to this ministry. Kathy and her husband, Orv, have been married for 41 years and have two daughters and five grandchildren. Kathy tells us that while her service to the community is a joy…her greatest passion and delight is her family. 
As the Clearinghouse Coordinator, she will provide much needed support to the volunteers in this ministry. Kathy’s excitement about service goes back as far as she can remember…all centered around home, work and community. 
She says, "I've always enjoyed helping and sharing with others. This opportunity is God sent." Never in all her job positions was she able to worship, serve, and witness God's handiwork on a daily basis. "I look forward to each day as God works through Serve Wenatchee Valley." Partnering with pastors and churches, working together to serve the whole valley…demonstrating the love of Jesus Christ.

Teresa Craig Office Manager email


Teresa joined our team on April 1, 2016.  She came to the Wenatchee Valley in 2005 with her husband, Dan, and two children. Teresa has served in Christian ministry for many years and has taken notice of how the Lord has been preparing her throughout her career for this position, at this time and place, for His purpose. Scripture says, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 Teresa is excited to be a part of what God is doing here.


Jeremy Peyton Program Coordinator email

Jeremy Peyton can hardly contain his joy at being the husband ofAnna Peyton and father of Elise, Isaac, and Asher. He loves biking around Wenatchee and exploring our beautiful hills and mountains. He had the pleasure of developing programs with the American Lung Association, American Red Cross, and Compassion And Mercy Associates (CAMA) while serving in West Africa. He is ordained by the C&MA and loves playing and writing music with others. Most of all, Jeremy is amazed to have been chosen by the God of the Universe to be adopted as a son.
