I serve on the board and help out with the ushers, as well as on the emergency response team. I have attended Willamette for over 40 years, and really enjoy helping on the prayer teams and also with small groups. My favorite thing about the Willamette Valley is that it is in the center of the state, and you can drive 2 to 4 hours in different directions, and enjoy very different nature scenes: rivers, mountains, lakes, and the ocean. In fact, I moved to regain just because of the trees. I grew up in Illinois.
