Pastor Boz

Husband, Legend of Zelda Enthusiast

Hi, I'm Pastor Boz. I grew up going to church since I was born, and as I got older I felt a strong calling from God to become a pastor and plant churches. After high school I served as a youth leader, and two years later I also graduated from college with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology. 

I'm honored to lead the Community Care Team because I want to help people through some of their darkest times. Over the past years, I've been through a lot: getting wrongfully fired from my job, being diagnosed with MS, and watching my wife go through countless health issues. Through it all though, I have seen God at work in my life, and I want to see others allow God to help them like he helped me.

Mommahiggs

Mom of Six Kids (and chickens)

Hi, I am Mommhiggs, also known as Tami or Crazy Chicken lady, whichever you prefer. I am married to an amazing man named Scott (Thermo), have six awesome kids who you may be familiar with such as Higs, TheeMattyice, 11thtardis, or Elizahiggs, and crazy chicken lady to my 30+ chickens and 24 ducks. I hope to get more animals in the future, such as horses, pigs, cows, the list goes on. I love talking to people, being outside, gardening, going to the beach, and currently playing Clash of Clans.

 

I love being apart of the Community Care Team because I want to help people through some of their darkest times. I know God helped me through my tough times and I want to see people allow God to help them. About 9 years ago, I was diagnosed with General Panic Disorder and developed agoraphobia, which means I was unable to leave my house because of my anxiety. I struggled with this for three years and during that time, I almost took my life. These were dark days for me but through it all, I knew God was with me. He is the reason I am here today. He gave me victory from all of that and I want to help others find victory through Him too.

Mihric

Wife, Mom, Homemaker, Gamer

Hi, I'm Mihric, also known as Mieke. I'm married to Mahric (Arno). We have 3 children, Stefan, Lydia and Carina.
I was born in the Netherlands, and moved to Ontario Canada when I was 7. Most of my schooling was there, and through this, English is just as normal to me as Dutch. I came back to the Netherlands when I was 16, where I met Arno and stayed. Being far away from most of my own family was hard at times, but also made me independent very quickly.

Twelve years ago I was diagnosed with ADD and depression. With 3 kids growing up and Arno having autism (Aspergers) it was a challenge. But God has always been close, even if I didn't always experience it. We have had difficult times and we had to learn to cope with his autism, but God has helped us through it. Through this Arno was a loving husband, and a pillar through my struggles with the ADD and depression. Over the past several years I have grown closer to God and through this (and under guidance of my doctor) I am now off of my meds for both the ADD and depression, and I am doing amazing.

Thermo

Chemist, Dad of Six, Gamer

Hi, I am Thermo, also known as Scott. I am married to Mommahiggs and we have six amazing kids. Chemist by day, and gamer by night. My favorite games are Apex, Overwatch, and Clash of Clans. I also enjoy working on cars, being outside, hunting, camping, and spending time with my family.
 

I am glad to be apart of the Community Care team because I want to see people overcome their struggles through Jesus. It was tough for me to watch my wife deal with anxiety/depression but it also helped me to see and understand what she went through so I can help others push through their struggles and find hope.

BigBenIvey

Dad, Gamer, Palace Youth Volunteer

Hi, I’m Big Ben and I live in Northern Maine with my teenaged son. I’ve been a gamer my whole life. Gaming used to be my escape. I lost thirteen years of my life self-medicating and fighting a losing battle with depression and anxiety. I was bullied and really just didn’t like myself. Virtual realities were a lot more fun than my own. Eight years ago, Jesus changed my whole life. Where there used to be emptiness in me, now there is hope and purpose. 

In the eight years that I have been clean and sober, I graduated from Bible College with a degree in theology and a minor in pastoral studies. I joined the Community Care team to help people deal with some of the things that I went through. I may not have all the answers, but I can at least provide a listening ear. I’ve dealt with a lot of things in life, more bad than good and I’ve learned how to lean on God to help me get through them. I just want to use the gifts and abilities that God has given me to help the people in this community.
