Samantha and her family started attending The Valley Church in late 2020 after moving back to Shelby County from Cincinnati. They tested out several churches in the area before they felt truly welcomed after joining their life group at The Valley. In 2022, Samantha said YES to helping launch the Sidney Campus. She felt God nudging her to do something outside of her comfort zone. Samantha currently serves as the Community Outreach Coordinator for The Valley Church Sidney. She strives to show the community that they are loved by their Creator.
Samantha and her husband, Jacob, have three small children, Jackson, Maverick, and Reagan. She graduated from Northern Kentucky University with a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and certification to teach. Samantha taught high school mathematics for five years before becoming a stay-at-home-mom and small business owner. Some of her hobbies include baking, sipping on iced coffee, party/event planning, and spending time with her family. Samantha is passionate about encouraging others to discover the gifts that God has given them and how they can use those gifts to lead others to Jesus.
