Encounter, Engage, & Experience God Daily

Amy RauGuest Speaker Amy Rau is delighted to share an experience of fellowship, fun, and faith at our first annual Ladies Day event! She is married to a wonderful Christian man, Nick, and has a daughter (Arianna, 11) and two step-children (Samantha, 22, and Benjamin, 20). Amy has a pre-seminary degree from Kuyper College and is currently a member of The Springs Free Methodist Church in Cedar Springs. She serves on the Church Board (Visionary Leadership Team), leads the Welcome Team, and is currently teaching God’s Word to 5th & 6th graders on Wednesday evenings. She also finds time to lead evening services at their sister church in Sparta. Outside of church, Amy sits on the CASSA (Cedar Area Select Soccer Association) board, volunteers weekly in her daughter’s elementary school classroom, and coaches girls basketball.

Through God’s word and her own personal testimony, Amy’s goal is to invigorate and activate women in this journey called life. She is passionate about loving Jesus personally and sharing Him with everyone! She says that her existence is to “reflect Christ to all in any circumstance for which I am a work in progress.” She also believes that Abraham Kuyper said it best, “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!”
