Marissa Wessels

MOPS Coordinator

Marissa works with the most committed and passionate volunteer leadership team to plan and provide effective programming for MOPS and MOMSnext every Thursday morning at our Cedar Falls Campus. From teaching and speakers, table discussions, hot breakfast, time to be alone while the children receive quality childcare to encouragement paired with lots of grace and love, Thursday mornings are sure to fill the cup of those in the trenches of motherhood.

Marissa thinks mothering is a holy calling, a kingdom-building and soul-shaping work. She knows what happens on Thursday mornings is far reaching for generations to come. Marissa feels honored and finds great joy in encouraging moms in every stage, in the valley or on the mountaintop, to fully embrace the gifts God has so graciously given them - their precious families.

Marissa is married to her high school sweetheart, Dallas. They enjoy life on the farm with their four children Maleah, Layla, Charlie and Ruby. As a family, they enjoy the seasons of Iowa: summer skiing and tubing on the lake, harvest season in the fall, snowed in winters in the country and gardening and being outside together in the spring.
