Our team is having a wonderful time learning to deepen our dependence on God in order to say yes to His vision to take the love of His Son Jesus Christ out to the streets in downtown Shelton, WA  to bring change into more lives. We are excited for 2024 and the opportunity He’s given us to continue to grow together in Him through this ministry. Please let us know  if this ministry might be the one for you. Let us share, pray & be encouraged by one another as His body~ to joyfully serve the One whose love went all the way to the cross for each of us!

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, Rhonda Dagais-Stevens

Has been a volunteer since 2020.

At the age of 28 I became aware of my desires to help others. God has always provided more than enough for me. At that time, I decided it was single parents I could give to.
I opened a daycare and took on helping the low-income world. In addition to providing 3 daily meals and 2 snacks to the daycare children and their parents(s) I took additional food to these families. Many of the children I helped care for had parents struggling with addiction. I then had the opportunity to foster twin boys which allowed me to see the full effects of parental addiction.
This is the course God put me on that  led me to serving with Crazy Love Ministries. I’m thankful I can continue feeding the needy and intervening for the addicts in our communities through the efforts of this ministry.
“How does God’s love abide in anyone who has the world’s goods and sees a brother or sister in need yet refuses to help? Little children, let us love not in words, but in truth and action.” 1 John 3:17-18

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.
