I’m Scott and I’m a cattle rancher from Tulare County. I enjoy pack trips to the high Sierras, mules, diesel trucks, and a good steak. I always wanted to be a pirate growing up, but I get sea sick. So I decided to be a cowboy instead. If I were to be an animal, I would be a mule because they are smart, tough, and strong. My hero is the cartoon character “Droopy” the dog because he is always there for every situation.

My name is Dee Dee Johnson and I have a financial background in bookkeeping and banking.  I enjoy being a part of leadership, bringing with me the experience of over eight years in a board position with my local church. I enjoy hospitality, photography, DIY projects, organizing, missions, and of course my furry four legged friends. I always wanted to be a writer growing up. If I were an animal I would be an eagle.

Hi my name is Aaron and I have the amazing job as the director here at Crown Valley. My passions are too long to list, but here are a few: God, family, wood working, backpacking and dirt bike riding. I’ve been involved with youth since being a youth. Nothing is more rewarding then seeing a young person understand God, commit to Christ, and serve His kingdom. What is most amazing about this process is how God does it in so many amazing ways. I’m never bored in exploring God with a young person.

When I was growing up I always wanted to be a marine biologist, that was before I saw the movie JAWS. If I could be any animal it would be a wolf. They are survivors and travel in packs. My super hero is Batman! He is the real deal. No super powers, just smart and wealthy.

My name is Jazmine Shannon and I am a daughter of the True King, praise Jesus. I am a session leader here at CVYR and I coordinate the Arts and Crafts program. I am 21 years old, I am a newlywed, and I am a dog and horse momma. I live in the middle of a walnut orchard with views of the Sierra Nevadas; I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I would definitely be a Pegasus if I were an animal. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be a horse with wings? I could fly everywhere and be majestic, both of which I am unfamiliar. I wanted to grow up to be an architect. However, my dream job is exactly what I’m doing here at CVYR, as a kid I just didn’t think a job like this even existed! My super heroines are Wonder Woman and Super Girl, but only as an unconventional duo.
