E-mail Darcy Omstead

Darcy serves as the Life Church Administrator and it’s a dream come true for her. Although she was baptized at the age of eight, she didn’t begin to fully realize a personal relationship with Jesus or recognize the Holy Spirit in her life until three years ago.  As a result, she began to blossom and is still growing and maturing in her faith each day. Just two years ago, she married a wonderful, God-loving man and began a blended family of three sons ages 17, 10 and 6. Once a city girl, she now spends her free time with her family, their 3 large dogs and enjoys country living.  She likes to read, write and take pictures of everyday life.
