We value the unique expressions of individuals and their impact on our community.
FHRS started as a training ministry of FHI. It was founded by leadership team Tom and Kathie Griner, Ken and Diane Kasterko, and Karen Page, FHRS pastor. Tom and Kathie Griner continue to serve oversight leadership, and Ken and Diane Kasterko continue to be local advisers. Karen Page, along with FHRS Board, now serve the fellowship locally. We are a part of the larger team which includes Albie and Helen Pearson, Michael Dalton, and Jimmy Byane from Desert Christian Community Church in Desert Springs, California.
