Welcome our new Director: Angela Kupas
In Angela's own words:
I have been married to my best friend, Peter, for 12 years. We have 2 children, Savanah and Gino, which keep us busy and entertained. Pete and I are both passionate for Jesus. We do ministry together and Jesus has been the foundation for our life and marriage. I felt the calling into ministry; focused on Worship Arts about 8 years ago. I had started the process to become a licensed and ordained minister of the Church of God and in 2011 I was Ordained.
I grew up in Leechburg all my life then when Pete and I got married we moved to Apollo for 10 years. We felt very comfortable there, but felt like God was calling us to take a step of faith. We had been attending North Main Church of God, at that point for 8 months, and knew that God was asking us to put down roots. We took that step of faith and moved to Butler almost 2 years ago. Basically, we moved for the Church. I am currently a worship leader at North Main and Pete and I both lead the young adult activities at the Church- mainly weekly Bible Study. I am also the Special Events Director for North Main.
I started at Life Choices not quite 2 years ago as the Executive Assistant. I had no idea that God was placing me in a position of leadership in this ministry. I had some time while Chelsea was on Maternity leave to be the “acting director”. During that time I felt like I was able to make some solid relationships and get to know the employees more one on one.
Moving into the Executive Director role really never crossed my mind. When I felt God leading me that way, I couldn’t escape it. I tried to not think about it, hoping those thoughts would just go away. But God wouldn’t let it go. As I was seeking direction, He kept giving me confirmations through His Word. I was nervous and scared but at the same time had a peace that only comes through Him.
I am honestly just keeping my eyes on Jesus through all of this transition. He keeps reminding me to just listen to His voice…. Be still….
I feel like I am in over my head, but that’s exactly where He wants me. In that place is where He gets ALL the glory and I am totally dependent on Him. At this point I don’t have big plans, but what I do know is, He is in control. This is His ministry, not mine. I’m just seeking Him and letting Him lead us.
