Leadership at the Family of Faith is considered a fruit of the Spirit (Romans 12:8). This fruit of the Spirit is given by God to both professional church workers and volunteers. Therefore, the leadership of our congregation combines the skills and abilities of both paid and non-paid church workers.

Three kinds of leadership groups make up our leadership team:

One, the administrative leadership; two, the Ministry Teams; and three, the elders.circle of life

Favorite Bible Verse: “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2)




Assistant Pastor, Larry Wong. Pastor Wong leads the Crosstraining Karate Ministry.





Preschool Director, Cora Nash

I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History from Texas A&M and a teacher’s certification from Concordia University.

My favorite part about teaching is watching my students eyes light up with excitement when they learn something new and the confidence they   gain when they learn new skills.  My favorite part of leading is empowering others to be who God designed them to be.

I am wife of Rick and mom of Sofia and Nathan.

I have been teaching for more than 3 years.  I worked in technology sales and service for 15 years before God called me to teach and I am so      grateful to serve Him and you as your Preschool Director.
