Sharon T. Ellens
I am a lifelong CRC member, and a longtime employee of the CRC in various capacities, currently as Director of Advancement Services* in the Grand Rapids office. I have no official role with the Network, but am very interested in seeing the CRC broaden its influence with younger generations and a wider ethnic community. *I describe Advancement Services as "the backroom for fundraising and communications." Our stellar team in Burlington, Pasadena, and Grand Rapids helps CRC ministries raise support and awareness by managing a large database, processing gifts, producing receipts and reports, streamlining processes, and suggesting best practices.
