Amy
Archer

Executive Assistant to the Pastor
Membership/Marketing Elder
I'm the mom of 2 extraordinary teenagers - Joe 17yrs and Lainey 15yrs. -  I'm also a wife, married to my best friend, Paul Archer, for the past 20 years. I recently turned 50, so trust me when say, "I've been through a lot!" Some really great, some really bad, but I have no doubt that the Holy Spirit led me straight to EPRC for a reason! And I'm so happy She did! I've been working here as the Office Administrator (aka "The Church Lady") for the past 6+ years. I'm excited and honored to be the newest 'Membership & Marketing' Elder. I'm a relentless Seeker of Truth, I love this community and I'm passionate about telling people about God's abundant love; which has given me the gift
of ultimate freedom.

Jordan
Shive

Director of Youth, Family & Small Groups Ministries
Hi, I’m Jordan Shive, and am very excited to be a part of the staff of Eagle River Presbyterian Church. I was born in Huancayo, Peru, was adopted as an infant, and was blessed with a very loving family.  I was raised in Green Bay, WI, so I am an ever-loyal Packer fan. I can and will support the Broncos as long as they are not playing the Packers! I graduated in 2013 from Jamestown College with a BA in Fine Arts Music. In 2016 I started working on my MDiv at Fuller Seminary through the online program. I am thankful for this opportunity to serve Christ among you. I’m looking forward to sharing the love of God wherever I can. Philippines 3:20 and Ephesians 4:11-13 have been significant verses in my life. The two passages tell us where our true citizenship lies, and where our eternal rest will be. Email: [email protected]

Beth
Perner

Music & Worship Elder
Hi, My name is Beth Perner.  I grew up in the mid-west and have lived in Colorado for the past 38 years. I worked as a registered nurse in Denver and here in the valley for 35 years and am now retired.  I regularly attend the ERPC Women's Book Club and the Women's Bible Study-these groups have been so welcoming and I have learned so much.  We do study the Bible, of course, but it is so much more.  I have learned so much about my own life and about the other women in the group. I feel like I missed out on something when I have to miss a meeting! This is so much more than just a scholarly study of the Bible. I joined Eagle River Presbyterian Church in 2017 and became Worship and Music Elder in 2018.  This committee is primary responsible for organizing the Easter and Christmas worship services, decorations, the Welcome Team, and the monthly communion arrangements.  We coordinate as needed with the music and bells choir and youth education.  We are always looking for new members, so keep us in mind if you would like to get involved with any of these activities.  I have really enjoyed being the elder for this committee. I love the friendships I have made and the relationships I have with the other elders. I have a much clearer understanding of how the church works and just what it takes to make a service happen every week. Email: [email protected]
Beth's One Word for 2019 is CHERISH
