Bonnie Nederhoff

Office Administrator

Bonnie joined the EIBC team in February of 2021. She had never been to camp, but had moved to the area a year ago and had been praying for the right place in the community to serve and connect. When she saw EIBC needed an Office Administrator that prayer and several others were answered in one big way. Bonnie started her family back in 2017 through foster care and adoption. She loves spending the majority of her time with her twins, Roman and Rosemary, and is excited for them to grow up having EIBC always a part of their memories.
