Elmaré du Biel - Admin. Secretary

Elmaré is our Administrative Secretary. If you call the church office Monday through Friday, you will probably reach her. She is the backbone to our office and takes care of all printing, copying, emailing, and other administrative needs.

Elmaré was born in South Africa. After 2 years at college, she started working at attorney firms as a legal secretary and eventually left her last firm and South Africa as a conveyancing paralegal. She met her husband Anthony during her second year of college and they eventually got married. He introduced her to the Church of God and they have been serving in this church ever since. They have two children, Alyssa and Aidan. She can look back over the years and see so many examples of the Lord's protection, guidance, and grace in her life, and has an amazing story of God opening doors and leading them to the United States and Carroll County!

Elmaré enjoys spending time with friends and family and good food! She also likes going to the movies and loves all kinds of music.
