Administrative Assistant


Joni Kraayenbrink

     I am the Administrative Assistant at Stone Ridge. I enjoy my job very much, mostly because of all the people I meet. I really get excited for Sunday mornings, meeting the new people that come through the doors.
I love the people that stop by my office during the week to just say "hi".  It is truly a joy for me to see people come to Jesus and grow in their relationship with Him.

     I grew up in a Christian home, I went to Sunday School and church every Sunday at a Presbyterian Church. I played the organ for church from jr. high through high school. I always believed in Jesus and accepted Christ in jr. high. It wasn't until I went to a Sunday School class on the book of Romans, at our church in Minnesota, that my eyes were truly opened. I realized how much Jesus desired a love relationship with me. We moved to Decorah in 1994, and I rededicated my life to Christ and was baptized in 1995.

     I've been married to my husband Mark for 37 years. We enjoy getting together with friends and spending time with our kids and grandchild, and our families. I enjoy reading and playing piano. Mark likes to bike on the trails in town. We have two grown children a son Jordan, a daughter Kaylie & her husband Brent. They have a daughter Lakelyn. We love being grandparents!

    One of my favorite Bible verses is: Jer. 29:11 ~ "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
