Mariana was born and raised in Grosse Pointe. She was baptized at Old Mariner’s Church, where her godfather’s father was the minister for many years. She was raised Lutheran, confirmed at Christ the King in Grosse Pointe, and became a member of St. Thomas Lutheran, Eastpointe as a teenager when she first met Pastor Andrzejewski. After graduating from Western Michigan University with a degree in Dance and second major in Psychology, she found an interest in restaurant management, and moved to the Grand Rapids area to pursue that career. It was then that Mariana became a member of New Hope Lutheran Church and worked part-time as a secretary for Pastor Andrzejewski. Mariana has been the Office Manager here at Historic Trinity for four years and has enjoyed getting to know the lovely people and treasured working for the Lord, praying that He is glorified through it all.
Mariana and her husband, Kurt, met at HT and feel very blessed by all the love and support. They love to travel, enjoy the outdoors, and stay busy with their eight year old son, Barrett.
Favorite Bible verse: 1 Corinthians 2:9 “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”
