Office Administrator


Belinda has served in administration at Meadowbrook since June 2000. She juggles many responsibilities  each day including scheduling the church calendar, answering phone calls, handling facility inquiries, preparing the weekly bulletin and birthday/anniversary calendar in print and online, handling benevolence cases, greeting visitors, and blowing kisses to Meadowbrook preschoolers who walk by, wave, and say, “Hey, Miss Ba-len-da!” –which, by far, is her favorite way to lose focus!

Ray has been on staff at Meadowbrook since 1991. He knows pretty much every nook and cranny of the nearly 60,000 square feet Meadowbrook has under roof. He is a jack-of-all-trades, and a master of some. No job is too big or small for him. Ray loves to spend his free time hunting, drag racing (legally) and watching his Philadelphia Eagles.
