Doris Moore, Church Secretary

A lifelong member of Boehms Church, Doris has served in more capacities than can be counted. Her heart for mission and evangelism drives her to serve for two months each summer at Broken Arrow Bible Ranch in New Mexico. She served as Alpha Course administrator, teaches in the children's ministries, is the secretary and treasurer of Boehm's Chapel Society, and she is on the Church Council.


Richard Hackman, Groundskeeper

Rich Hackman is also a life long member of Boehms who has served in nearly every capacity possible. His heart for mission has taken him to the western U.S. to build trails and assist in fighting wildfires, as well as to serve at Broken Arrow Bible Ranch. If there is a hands-on mission opportunity through Boehms Church, Rich wants in. He is also Head Usher. Folks in the area also know him as the Alpaca Guy - his two pet alpacas live right next to the church.
