After spending three years away, Miss Sondra Moser is happy to be back as a member of the JLU family.  After leaving JLU in 2018, she used her leadership skills at the Crisis Nursery in Rochester.  Although she loved her time there, she found it frustrating not to share God’s love to the children in her care.  Miss Moser is thrilled to return to our program where she is able to lead a ministry and not simply a business.   Her extended time as a teacher in the classroom, professional management experience and her enthusiasm for Christ give her a unique ability to serve the JLU children, families and staff each day.
