Maureen grew up in a Bible believing home in southern California, came to know Jesus at an early age, and experienced missions while her family hosted visiting missionary families. Her passion for missions grew as she participated in many short term trips beginning in middle school, in Mexico, Central America, and Central Asia. Life from missions paused as she raised her three children, and ran a home based business for twenty five years. While raising her children, she also hosted international students in her home as a mission field. Maureen relocated to Grants Pass, Oregon in the late 90s and then to Vancouver in July 2017 to assist the LoveNOW Missions Pastors and be close to her son, wife, and granddaughter. She is thrilled to join the Crossroads family working within her passions and using her admin skills to serve Jesus. In her free time, Maureen loves to organize, create, hike, raft, and read a good book in the hammock.
