Meet your Women’s Ministry Leadership Team!

Amber Knapp

Women’s Ministry Director

Amber and Pastor John heard and followed the call of the Lord to come to Green Valley to plant a Calvary Chapel in 1998! Every day since has been an adventure, as they have seen the Lord move and do great and mighty things! Amber is the mother of three teenage boys- all serving at the church in ways that honor their individual gifting from the Lord. Early every morning, before the day begins, Amber most looks forward to getting into the Word of God to study and hear from the Lord! In addition to her love of the women in the church, Amber enjoys hiking, cooking and camping with her family! She is often outside riding her bicycle, meeting a friend for coffee at Panera or reading Devotions and Bible Studies, seeking the Lord with all her heart, as well as pursuing and discerning His will for Women’s Ministry.

One of her favorite scriptures is Ephesians 3:20-21.

21Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen

Kendal Adams

Christmas Tea Coordinator, Women's Ministry Publications and Graphics

Kendal grew up in a Christian home in Henderson where life was centered on church and family. She met her husband of 22 years, Bill Adams, at church, where they were introduced to each other a half dozen times over ten days! Pastor Bill is the Principal and Administrator of CCGVCA, our Christian Academy. Kendal has been an attorney in Nevada for 29 years, although she now considers herself semi-retired. Over the years, Kendal has consistently followed her heart by serving in women's ministry and marrieds’ ministry. Kendal enjoys visiting, cooking for company, fishing, family and writing. Her goal this year has been to read a good book every month!

Favorite scriptures- Matthew 6:33. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. and Ephesians 4:32. 32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

Brenda Arce

Women's Ministry Assistant to the Director, Special Events Coordinator

Brenda has a tender heart for women of all ages! Since early in her marriage, the Lord has consistently opened doors and called Brenda to be a Women’s Bible Study Leader, serving in both California and Arizona. Then, in September 2000, the Lord directed Brenda, her husband Rudy and their twin teenage daughters to Nevada and to CCGV. The Lord again impressed on her heart to serve in Women’s Ministry, even as she also served with her husband in Youth Ministry, and home-schooled their teenage daughters. The Lord has blessed them in this amazing journey, and in 2007, she and Pastor Rudy came on staff full-time at CCGV. Brenda recently became a delighted grandmother of two- with a third blessing on the way! She also enjoys gardening, a good meal with loved ones and hiking in the great outdoors! Brenda is that extraordinary example of a godly wife, mother, daughter and friend.

Her life verse is Proverbs 3:5-6.

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

Glenus Cooper

Communications Coordinator and Bible Study Leader Liaison

Married 43 years, Glenus is mother to three adult daughters and loves spending time with her 6 grandchildren, the joy of her life! She believes it is a privilege to serve the Lord through Women’s Ministry and says “I love being part of the fellowship of sisters-in Christ.” Glenus is an encourager who genuinely likes people and loves coming alongside women desiring to walk closer to the Lord. She simply glows with kindness and warmth- and not just from her beautiful suntan. On that note, we will just say that she and her husband delight in amazing travel to warm, tropical and exotic locations! She likes to wear headphones while running so she can worship the Lord, loves reading all kinds of books, especially the Bible, and digging in the dirt- watching new plants grow!

Her favorite verse is Proverbs 3:5-6.

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. 

Kristi Walter
