Daphne has served in various leadership capacities at One Heart Church such as: Assistant to the Children’s Minister, Childcare Provider, Student Ministry Chaperone, Missions Lead Team Committee member and as a member of OHC Praise, amongst others. She’s committed to seeing hearts, minds, and lives transformed by God through the power of the Holy Spirit for “life” and the Lord Jesus Christ. In 2007, Daphne left over 20 years of corporate America for full-time missions and ministry service, Daphne was called to volunteer and shortly thereafter serve on staff at APRC in the spring of 2007. Daphne’s passionate about the sanctity of all human life, sexual risk avoidance, abortion recovery, and serving at risk and underserved people groups, especially young people and children. Not limited to local missions, she also serves internationally in Romania, which she now considers home. Making 11 trips of differing lengths over the past 10 years, the Lord united her two passions as Romania has a generation of marginalized orphans and the second highest abortion rate in the world.

Speaker: Betsy Primm
The ability to read is one of the most essential skills a person can acquire. Today, we know the greatest predictors of a young child’s future success in learning to read. The remarkable thing about these predictors is that they not only can be identified but can and should be taught before a child begins to learn to read! The result is that a child can be prepared to meet and master reading before he or she ever begins to learn to decode words. This workshop will identify these gateway pre-reading skills and provide parents with examples of free, easy, fun, and effective ways to help their children become successful, confident beginning readers.
