OUR teAM



The Church is not a building.  The Church is the people.  

We could not do what we do without the people who do what they do

to make the Eagle Rock Church not just a church, but a family.  

There are too many to name, but we see what you do, and we are grateful.


"I thank my God upon every remembrance of you."  

Philippians 1:3

  • Janelle Miller

    Administrative Assistant (1 of 2)

    Janelle is one half of Team Secretary.  She was born and raised in Southern California and has been a member of the Eagle Rock SDA Church for over 20 years.  She believes music makes the world go 'round, and enjoys singing at the top of her lungs (when no one is around to hear).  She spends a large portion of her free time making weird faces at her niece and nephew (don't worry, they started it...probably).  She is also pleased to report that she's probably wearing a matching pair of socks, and only like a 20% chance her shoes are untied.

  • Krista Mchale

    Administrative Assistant (2 of 2)

    Krista is the other half of Team Secretary.  She was also born and raised in Southern California and has been a member of the Eagle Rock SDA Church for over 20 years.  She has yet to write her own bio, so her sister has taken it upon herself to inform you that she's awesome (Krista's awesome, not the sister...just to be clear). 

    For the moment, that's all you need to know. 

    (As the aforementioned sister doubts the common sense of humans in general, she feels the need to point out that Krista doesn't actually look like a field of sunflowers...again, just trying to be clear.)
