Meet our 2024 Executive Director, Board of Directors & Crew Volunteers

Founder & Executive Director, Wendy Petty

 I have been a faithful believer in Jesus Christ since 2008. I thank the Lord daily that as a result of opening my heart to Him, my children have also come to know their Creator and their purpose in this world. It is in great joy that we want to share the freedom and transformation that He has brought into our lives. “We have been crucified with Christ and we no longer live, but Christ lives in us. The life we now live in the body, we live by faith in the Son of God, who loved us and gave himself for us,” Gal 2:20

President, Cheryl Phipps

Has been a volunteer since 2017.

I have been a follower of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ since I was baptized in July of 2005. God’s love saw me through the loss of my husband in 2008. Knowing that God is in control of our time on earth and knowing there was nothing I could have done to change the outcome helped me to cope with my loss. There are times I have drifted a bit, but I  have always striven to stay on God’s path. I have been blessed with a servant’s heart! I love serving in this ministry and I always look forward to the outreach we do. It is a blessing to be able to help those in need! “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms,” 1 Peter 4:10

Secretary, Dan Bryan

Has been a volunteer since 2019.

God has been gracious to me in my life and has supplied my every need. Even in difficult times, I see His loving kindness and want to pass that love along to others. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus,” Romans 3:23-24

Treasurer, Melanie Lightbody

Has been a volunteer since 2022.

My husband, Rick and I have a heart for fellow humans, particularly for those experiencing homelessness. We have both been following Jesus for over fifty years and through our Bible reading and study we came to believe that there is no more important ministry every Christian can do than being Jesus’ hands and feet to a world that needs Him. Crazy Love does the boots‐on‐the‐ground work that I believe God calls us all to do: Serve Him and serve others. I am honored to be apart of this organization as treasurer.

Associate Director, Gary Boe

Has been a volunteer since 2020.

I have been a strong follower of Jesus Christ since 1/16/58, the day of my baptism, which I remember very clearly. Like most, I have stumbled and fallen, but have always picked myself up and gotten back on track through the strength, love and forgiveness of our Lord, Jesus Christ. My goal is to grow in the love of Christ and to love others as He does.
