A lot of coffee.

  • Julia Hudelson


    Julia has worked at MPCC in the office as secretary since March 2012. She and Jeff have been married and working in ministry for 22 years, but she wants everyone to know that working in the office with her husband has been a lot of fun…well… most of the time.. She enjoys meeting new people and really likes visitors in the office. Working with kids in every ministry has taught her not to take herself too seriously, because kids can really put you in your place.
