The Refresh committee is comprised of 9 ladies from Bethel Mennonite, Covenant Fellowship, and Ebenezer Mennonite, all conservative Anabaptist churches in south-central Virginia.
Joanne Hershberger – Chair
I am Eric’s wife and mom to Cedric. Bethel Mennonite is our home church. I enjoy meaningful connection, creating beauty and providing opportunities for ladies to experience refreshment. Working alongside other ladies who share a vision for Refresh has been a joy!
Rachel Zehr – Assistant Chair
I am Glen’s wife and mother to Sierra, Aleya, Jackson, Jayden, and Kaiden. My hobbies are putting together jigsaw puzzles with my oldest daughter, sitting around the supper table talking and laughing with my teenagers, and creating (meaningful) wall art. We are members at Covenant Fellowship.
Jenna Yoder – Assistant Chair & Decor
My growing up years were spent in the beautiful, wide open spaces of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Since 2007 I have been the BLESSED wife of Steven, and now mom to this lovely, lively bunch ~ Hannah, Phebe, Bronson, and Burkley. I am passionate about living the ABUNDANT LIFE that Jesus came to give, and sharing it with those I interact with. Date nights, family time, hosting, one-on-one time with a friend, and turning home into a life-giving space are all things you will find me pursuing regularly. We are blessed to call Bethel Mennonite Church and Southern Virginia home.
Crystal Yoder – Decor
I am married to Jeff, the love of my life. We are blessed with four children: Alex, Tony, Abriella, Autumn and two littles waiting to meet us in heaven. I enjoy anything that has to do with beauty: painting, decorating cookies/cakes, styling a room, or taking a walk in a beautiful setting. Our home church is Bethel Mennonite.
Jodi Yoder – Decor
I taught school for 4 years until I married Derek in June 2019. I enjoy art, the outdoors, and my full-time babysitting job. We are members at Bethel Mennonite Church.
Mildred Good – Food
I am Nathan’s wife, and mother to Jewel, Crystal, Joshua, Benjamin, Ginger and Suzanne. Each of our children have given us a wonderful mate whom we dearly love and thank God for. My relationship to Jesus is the joy and power of my life. Serving the people of God is fulfilling for us; Nathan serves as bishop in three congregations in the Southeastern Conference. Windmill Farm Bakeshop is our business in our hometown of South Boston, VA. I enjoy homemaking, gardening and all-out Southern hospitality. My door is always open and I would love to serve you a cup of my hand roasted coffee!
Jewel Yoder – Food
God has blessed my life richly with my calm husband, Norvan, and our six rewards: Carver, Raquelle, Autumn, Monti, Sienna and Cheyanne. We are a part of Ebenezer Mennonite Church. Peanut butter cups, coffee with cream, fresh flowers, chap stick, clean spots and quiet nooks are a few of my favorite things. The outdoors and beautiful music inspire and soothe my soul. Jesus is my Anchor.
Carolyn Good – Food
I live in Gladys, Va with my husband Paul and our five children: Isaac, India, Winston, Winter and Willow. We are members of Bethel Mennonite Church. I spend my time nurturing our children and helping Paul in our storage building business. I enjoy listening to our children’s quirky sayings, getting together with my mom and sisters, reveling in God’s beautiful creation and cooking Mexican, Japanese, and Thai food. I look forward to serving you!
Anita Martin – Floater
I am married to Randy and am mom to Bentley, Bella, Lincoln, Talli, Cooper and Charli. Spending time with my family, being outdoors and taking my daily bike ride are my happy places. We call Covenant Fellowship our home church.
Angela Hartzler – Finances & Registration
I am from West Virginia and had the privilege of living in Laos for 5.5 years. Liberty University initially brought me to Gladys, VA. I do secretarial work for Long Island Lumber and I am involved in our local girls’ club. I enjoy good talks with friends, seeing new places, and reading. I call Covenant Fellowship my home church.
