Julie Harris, Secretary/Administrator

Born and raised in Ormond Beach, FL, Julie Harris is married and has three sons.
Julie has been serving in churches through a variety of ministries for over 20 years. She joined our staff in 2015 and her multifaceted experiences enable her to assist our church family. Her expertise allows her to see how to take the administrative load off of the Pastor and Church Council so that they can be more effective in their own areas of ministry. The administrative processes of the church are a lot like the “spokes of the wheel.” They must be performed well to allow the wheel—pastors and the Church Council ministering to the congregation—to turn correctly. If the administrative support is not performed correctly, then the wheel is not balanced and the road is rough. Her experience gives her an in-depth understanding of the needs of church office management.

Lynne Meinhold, Custodian

Lynn was born in Queens, New York and moved with her husband to Broward County, Florida in 1969.  They moved to Ormond Beach in 1987.  Lynn is now a widow with two adult children and a heavenly grandson and two granddaughters.

“We found Faith Lutheran Church to be such a friendly church and became members right after moving here.  Our children were confirmed at Faith Lutheran, our daughter married here, and our grandchildren were baptized here.  I have spent most of my life working with children, from teaching at church preschools, to being a Paraprofessional at Tomoka Elementary School, to now a Substitute Teacher.  My husband and I started cleaning the church over 20 years ago, and at various times, all of our family helped out.  By taking care of God’s house, a clean and welcoming facility is inviting to members and visitors to come in and worship.”
