Meet your staff: Frederick Bracken, Jodi Brown, Rebecca Holland, Bryon Jones and Atanya Photikam
When and how did you become a Christian? When I was in high school, I met some new friends who regularly attended a youth group. They invited me along, and I enjoyed my time there. My friends went over Scripture, and then they would answer questions and discuss personal stories. It was a comfortable setting, and I felt that I could openly ask about anything that came across my mind. This led me down the path of faith I am on now.

What character trait do you most admire and why? Humility. I admire those who go about life doing things for others without requiring recognition. We should always stay humble and kind.
How do you hope to make a difference at CHM? I hope to make a difference at CHM by helping to create the best possible member experience, no matter where someone is in their journey. I also want to help foster a deep sense of community amongst our members by increasing awareness of what CHM is, how it works, and why it is the perfect solution for so many people.
What do you like to do for fun? I enjoy reading, gardening, spending time with family and friends, artifact hunting and raising rabbits to educate 4-H youth. However, my first love is traveling. My wife and I love seeing the beauty God has created in so many places.
What small and seemingly insignificant decision had a huge effect on your life? In 2006, I moved to Ohio from California for a Bible training program. Though it was supposed to be only a year-long program, I decided to stay here. I had my own plans, but God’s plans were far greater than my own.
