When Amy and Heath aren't busy at their full-time jobs, they're rocking out at the church on Sundays.  Curating compelling songs that give voice to our rather particular sensibilities is not easy, but Amy and Heath are up for the challenge.  They're also utilizing professional-quality volunteer musicians.  #DoNotFeedTheDrummer


James Tutson, Sunday Morning Teacher

Part time Young Life staff, part time singer-writer, part time preacher, James is the classic Renaissance man. In addition to the pastoral staff, James joins Sanctuary's regular Sunday preaching rotation; he preaches about once every other month.  Check out his awesome campaign #BeMovedAndMove

Beth Faga, Ministry Coordinator

Beth, her husband Larry, and their four children have been a part of Sanctuary for over fifteen years.  Beth has served in a number of ministry and leadership roles over those years.  And in May, 2017, Beth joined the church staff as a part-time ministry coordinator.  As a part of this role, Beth will coordinate church events, help organize small groups, and assist with many other ministry needs.  


Judy McRoberts, HOF Coordinator

Our Hands On Faith (HOF) Ministry is how we organize service efforts in the local community and beyond.  Judy brings her years of experience working with people and organizations in the Iowa City area to effectively coordinate all these efforts.  


Administrative Staff

Phyllis Martin, Administrative Assistant    

Phyllis helps with day-to-day very necessary church stuff—maintaining calendars, staying on top of schedules, reserving meeting sites, sending out e-mails and reminders, and helping with Sunday morning organization. 


Amy Boelk, Bookkeeper 

Amy keeps our books in line, serves as the financial liaison to our Board, and generally keeps us all in a good mood. And when she can’t do it alone she brings chocolate. Or donuts.


Dana Lehmann, Communications Assistant & Kids Ministry Assistant

Dana wears two hats:  communications and kids ministry.  That means she knows more about what's happening in the church than just about anyone.  


Ashley Lindley, Sunday Coordinator

Ashley ensures that the Sunday morning coffee is hot and strong, and that the bagels are plentiful.  She also helps schedule a few of our Sunday morning volunteer roles:  greeting, setup, and prayer ministry.
