STAFF & BOARD
After years of working side-by-side in business, Carol and her husband, Jim, assumed the leadership of Sunshine Ministries in 1995. Although Jim’s health forced him to retire in 2014, Carol continues to serve as the ministry’s Director. Beyond her administrative duties, Carol especially enjoys working directly with the people that Sunshine serves and dreaming up new and fun activities to bring joy and happiness into their lives. Working at Sunshine gives her plenty of opportunities to exercise her passion for helping others discover and use their God-given gifts and talents to find purpose and fulfillment in life.
As a very proud mom and “Mama” to two daughters and four wonderful grandkids, Carol loves spending time with her family.

Senior Director of Ministry Support
Bryan’s association with Sunshine Ministries began in 1997 when he entered the Recovery Program for help to overcome his alcohol addiction. While in the program, he honed his culinary skills and got a great job at a prestigious hotel.
With a heart and a passion to “pay it forward” and help others overcome their addictions, Bryan returned to Sunshine in 1998 to serve the shelter guests. Although he still likes to keep his hands in the kitchen, his compassion for others and his leadership skills have taken him into his current role of Ministry Support Director.
In his free time, Bryan enjoys spending time with his wife, watching a good movie, bowling and serving at his church.
