Juan Miranda Office Manager
Juan Miranda joined the Serve Wenatchee Valley ministry at our first "Pain Free Christmas" Dental day as a volunteer in December, 2008. He accepted the call to serve as the Office Manager in May, 2011. He is a life-long resident of the Wenatchee Valley with two young sons- Langdon & Ian. He is currently a junior at Western Governor's University where he is studying education. His mission in life is to show the Love of Jesus to all through action not words. Community service is important to Juan as he serves on the board of directors of a local non-profit and volunteers to read with children at a local elementary school. While working at the ministry, Juan feels very blessed to see lives changed through Jesus' love!
Kathy Ochs Clearinghouse Coordinator
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.
