Julie is a part of the original crew that envisioned and planted The Village Church in Tucson, Arizona. She currently serves as a Pastor, but wears many other hats as well: counselor, teacher, small-group leader, mediator, administrator, Village Mom (and now Village Grandma).

Julie’s understanding of discipleship emerged from her own experience of abuse and redemption. She walks with others into this fellowship of suffering because she believes in the joy that the Gospel sets before us.

Julie, her husband Keith and daughter Anna (17) have lived in a community house with the Cepin family since 1998. Her son Jesse (21) recently escaped the commune with his new wife Vivianna. They all enjoy camping, super-hero shows, and story-telling.
