Etter began working with the church in December 2016. She has established a new name for the TFC Youth Group. Previously known as the ROCK (Reaching Out for Christ’s Kingdom) the youth group is now known as The Vine, in reference to John 15.

“I look forward to getting to know the teenagers of Van Wert and helping them through everyday struggles,” Etter said. “I am also pleased to be working with various community groups using our Family Life Center Facility.”

“I am personally thrilled to be joining the fine staff of TFC,” she added. “I believe that together we can build on the youth and future generation of TFC. I am also blessed by the support already shown to me by the people of TFC and by our area schools. God is good, all the time!”
