Pastor Carol’s passion is to bring people into the presence of God through true worship and the Word. That encounter ought to be both life changing and transforming.

Church Administrator
 

Andriece has been married to Chris since 1989, and she loves to go on adventures! Her  favorite scripture is Philippians 2:4, the Biblical mandate to be nosy! Andriece has 2 great sons who are the world’s best ever (to her anyhow). Ben & Ashley serve as the music minister’s in Hurst, Texas and Daniel currently is in the Air Force serving overseas. Her step daughter and her husband live in Kalamazoo and with 6 children they stay BUSY! Andriece has been the administrator at Truth Church for a total of 17+ years. During her tenure, she completed her MBA from Edinburgh Business School. She has had the privilege of helping different Michigan churches establish their church offices and procedures. Her passion is keeping the office organized and running smoothly. She believes that by taking care of the business aspects of the church, it frees up the Pastor to concentrate on the spiritual side and taking care of the flock.  “It is fulfilling when you are using the gift(s) God has entrusted you with to help in the Kingdom’s work. At Truth Church we help you to find your God given calling and give you the opportunity to put it to work! It’s a good life living for Jesus!”
