I am excited to be part of the staff here at Living Hope as the Office Administrator. I am the voice behind the office phone and will be the person responding to your emails. I grew up in Southern Ontario and attended Dordt University where I met my husband. We have been attending here together for over 25 years. When I am not at work you will probably find me busy in my other role as a mom, gardening or working on a project at home. I look forward to hearing from you!
My name is Rosalie Steenblok, and I’m your go-to person for many things behind-the-scenes — from cleaning to social media posts. My job has developed over the years from Custodian to now Facilities Manager and Director of Communications. As Facilities Manager I handle the cleaning of the church making sure everything is ready for mid-week events and Sunday services. My Director of Communications role developed during the pandemic as gatherings shifted to an online presence. Website maintenance, social media posts, and podcast creation all fall under this role as I help make the information coming from Living Hope readily accessible to the congregation.
When I’m not at work, I love to be outdoors exploring God’s beautiful creation whether that’s going for a walk, climbing a mountain or fishing on a lake. My husband is an avid fisherman, and he’s been teaching me the ins and outs of fishing since we started dating. I’m pleased to say I’ve finally caught a fish of my very own! Being creative is also a big part of who I am. That creativity manifests itself in the kitchen while I whip up elaborate desserts or in front of my easel as I paint landscape paintings inspired by my travels.
If you ever see me around Living Hope, don’t hesitate to stop and say hi!
