“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10
Esmeralda Randle is leading Strengthening Women Ministries. Born and raised in Mexico until she moved to the States at the age of fourteen. At the age of 21 she received the free grace of God and gave her life to Christ. She and her husband, Jon, have been married since 1999 and have four young boys. She’s been a member of Missio Dei Fellowship since 2000 and has served in various ministries, and is currently serving as a Deaconess.
As a stay-at-home mom, when she’s not tending her family and home, she’s reading a book, painting an old piece of furniture and/or spiritually mothering some young ladies at her home!
Her delight is seeing women use their gifts and creativity to further the gospel, bless their homes, and strengthen the church.
Elizabeth (Liz) Roeder has been married to her high-school sweetheart, Bruce, for 42 years and has been his helper in ministry for the past 20 years. She is the mother of Justin and his lovely wife, Missy and a grandma to three grandchildren. Liz enjoys spending time with her grandkids, and when she’s not at home you’ll find her working part-time in a medical office for Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare.
Liz’s idea of relaxing is being outdoors enjoying God’s creation whether it be taking a walk, bike riding, bird watching or working in her flower garden. Liz enjoys “antiquing” with her husband and likes to look for items to decorate her home.
Liz has been involved in women’s ministry in various capacities for the past 20 years. She completed the Reigning Grace Counseling Ministry biblical counseling training at a previous church and has a heart to disciple women and see them grow in Christ.
