Kim Yadon

No Regrets Director

I am passionate for young people of all ages. My drive to change lives towards hope and peace was instilled in me as a young girl. My passion for wholeness has been my ministry for over 13 year. I am a pastor’s wife who leads women to find their purpose. Lifeline has offered me a great opportunity for ministry. No Regrets is an ministry partner of Lifeline, always steering young people to make healthy whole decisions with their bodies.

 

Kirsten Boone

No Regrets Presenter

 

Hi there,  I have been working with Lifeline for just under a year. I proudly serve as a presenter with the No Regrets program where we teach students about sexual risk avoidance. I love pouring into younger generations and have the privilege of doing so here at Lifeline, as well as by serving with my husband on our church's youth leadership team. It is an honor to be a part of Lifeline!

Amanda Duerre

Nesting Place Director

I am so excited to be involved with opening a maternity home, The Nesting Place, right next door to Lifeline.

I graduated with a Master’s in social work in 2003 and have worked for family and child service and mental health organizations. Currently I am working part-time as a high school guidance counselor at Nampa Christian and a part time mental health counselor at Acacia Wellness Center. Chad and I have been married for 20 years and have 2 children, Thomas, 12 and Ella, 14.

We served as a family for 6 years in S. America with, what is now, Ardeo Global Ministries, working with church planting teams.
I have also enjoyed various lay leadership roles at College Church of the Nazarene.
I’m excited about being a part of Lifeline including a ministry that invites the Church to provide practical, intentional and long-term loving support to vulnerable families in Nampa.

Melissa Agnew

Client Services Director

My reason for coming to Lifeline was to volunteer as a Client Advocate five years ago. The unexpected pregnancy I had earlier in my life when I was 18 has given me insight on how to relate to our clients who come into Lifeline. I want to offer them the support and hope they need to make the best decision for them and their baby. I have served as the Embrace Grace Coordinator and Client Services Administer for the last two years. Prior to my coming to Lifeline I was a Preschool teacher for 4 years and homeschooled our daughter for 7 years. One of my favorite activities is watching hockey with my husband, Go Pens!

Tracy Burnett

Bookkeeper

Before I became a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom of two wonderful children I worked at some banks and for an accountant. I learned that I thoroughly enjoy the detail-oriented art of bookkeeping. Now that my children are older, I've been able to take on some part time work and was given the opportunity to use my gifts at Lifeline. I've worked for various companies over the years, but this is the first time for a place that has such a positive and life-saving impact in the community. I love being able to support the work at Lifeline! When I have a few free moments, I enjoy crocheting and watching cooking shows with my hard-working husband

Kim Echelmeier

Sonographer, RMDS

I've been an ultrasonographer of over 20 years and I started working at lifeline 9 years ago! It is such a rewarding team to be a part of. We have the opportunity to speak truth out of love and lead these girls to Christ. What a privilege it is to work for God. I have 3 children. Emma 18, Drew 15 and Luke 10. My husband Steve is a pastor for the 7 th Day Adventist Church. Lifeline is an important ministry in our community and I’m proud to be apart of it!  I’m excited to see what God has in store for us next.

Sharon Bartlow

Nurse Manager, RN

Upon completion of my RN degree I entered the Air Force, working in multiple disciplines including flight nursing and clinic work, but I most enjoyed the areas of pediatrics and labor and delivery. After 13 years of military related nursing I decided it was time to devote full-time effort upon the precious lives of our own children. As time allowed I worked a direct sales career, was a substitute teacher, including French and enjoyed some travel opportunities and multiple Bible studies. Our children are now grown and I am now grandma of two precious little ones. A few years ago I began volunteering with Lifeline.   After some time I was approached to join the LLPC staff as a nurse manager and I perceived God‘s leading to get my nursing license reinstated.  It was a lengthy and difficult process, but, with God all things are possible. Continuing to trust the Holy Spirit to empower and influence, whether in client discussions, during ultrasound appointments or other client encounters I look forward to serving the Lord in this role.

Robin Watters

Executive Director, RN

Hello! I am honored to be the Executive Director at Lifeline. I wish I could sit down with you and tell you all the many stories that are in my heart from the last 20 plus years of volunteering and working at this yellow house on 12th Avenue.
There is much work to be done and we are SO blessed to live in such a generous and loving community. We have weekly phone calls from women requesting abortion services. Often, they will come in for a free ultrasound and make a life changing decision. Often, we are able to share Christ, and someone will come to know Jesus. Your prayers, volunteer work and donations make a DIFFERENCE. If we all give some, we can see BIG change.
The NESTING PLACE Maternity Home is our most recent ministry project. This home will make deep and lasting changes in the lives of babies, mothers, fathers and their immediate families. Join in this quiet and yet SO urgent cause. You won't regret it!
