Stories of Serving - Dan Blackford

Stories of Serving - Dan Blackford

Written by Lindsey Taylor

Dan has been married for 30 years to his wife, Nancy. Together they have three daughters Kylie, Taylor, and Micah, that are grown and out of the house.

He and his wife just adopted a dog from the shelter named Hatchi. When he’s at home, he enjoys gardening and making the place look nice.

Dan has been attending SCC for 25 years and has served in various capacities ranging from leading worship to working in Kidzone. Dan currently serves on the tech team.

He likes the team atmosphere and the fact that, “We’re all pulling for the same end result, and that is to see Jesus lifted high.” He says it allows him to use the talents that God has given him and it lets him be around people that sharpen him.

Being in community with others completes him and helps him see who God is a little more clearly by doing ministry with them.

Stories of Serving - Amber Nobbe

Stories of Serving - Amber Nobbe

Written by Lindsey Taylor

Amber is married to Roger Nobbe and has a daughter, 12 year old Marcie, and a son, 6 year old Drew. They have been attending Shelbyville Community Church for about 3 years. Amber originally got involved serving in the nursery before changing to tech booth, and has stayed with it for 2 years.

She says Todd Crenshaw is one of the reasons she serves, “He teaches and encourages me.  He also works with your schedule and understands the balance we all need to have in our lives.”
 

This semester, she’s also co-leading an online bible study with Pastor Jess. She’s learned so much leading this study, and loves getting to know other great women who struggle with the same things she does.She’s also learned much from Todd, Brandon, Brad, Jason and Jessica about how much God loves us and wants to be with us every moment of every day.


“I've learned from them that we are all broken and none of them claim to have it all together and it’s ok! As far back as I can remember I have understood and believed that Jesus died on the cross for us, but since I started to serve at SCC I understand that God wants a personal relationship with us.  I am learning how to listen for him.  I am also learning to show people forgiveness and grace, even when I don't feel like they deserve it.”
