Executive Secretary

Stephanie Gertz
 
I have attended CrossRoads Christian Fellowship for the past 10 years and have worked as the Secretary since we have been in our new facility. My husband Larry and two children (Ricci and Mason) moved here from Phoenix in 1989. I grew up in Dilworth, Minnesota where most of my family stills lives. I have been involved in many different ministries in the 21 years we have lived here. I did upholstery work while my children were growing up which let me be a stay at home mom. The rest of my background is in Banking. Our move to Bigfork and the CrossRoads Family have been a true blessing to our family.

Executive Assistant

Linda Chenard
 

I was born in California and moved to Montana in November 1991.  I have been part of this church since its beginning.  After a brief absence, I returned to Crossroads in 2006.  I have adult sons (Kevin and Robert) and wonderful grandchildren (Tate and Sloane).  In 2010, I received my Bachelors of Biblical Studies degree from Trinity Biblical University.  In 2013, I received my certification from American Association of Christian Counselors and am presently leading this ministry along with a wonderful group of counselors.  I also have the privilege of being the administrator of Eden’s Child which is an international sponsorship program for 163 children in Rwanda, Africa.  One of the highlights of my life is when I get to visit them and see their smiling faces.

I have so enjoyed joining the other staff members in being the hands and feet of Jesus to our Crossroads family.
