Dawn Liebherr is familiar with Love INC of South Wood County because her husband, Paul Liebherr, has been on the Board of Directors since its inception. Knowing the good that Love INC does in our community made it an easy decision for her to apply when the Office Ministry Assistant job opened up. Dawn has followed Christ since she was a young girl and strives to live like Jesus on a daily basis.

It’s helping give others the tools they need to have a better life. "

Pastor Chuck Bradbury
Pastor Chuck Bradbury recently retired from over 35 years in the pastoral ministry. Chuck was on the original Development Board of Love INC in 2016 and then served on the first official Board of Love INC as its first President. He joined the Board in 2022 after realizing that God was reopening a door to Love INC for him to serve once again in the organization he helped to bring from the vision stage to the reality stage. He has always had a passion to see churches working together in the community to transform people’s lives and he believes that Love INC is the best way to make that happen.
Sue Siewert was asking the Lord to direct her to a place where she could be of help to others. Almost retired, she knew God had something new for her! Sue had been following Love INC of South Wood County since its development stage, and knew many of its volunteers. As a business owner who is active in the community, as well as being a lifelong resident of the area, Sue was seeing the growing needs in Central Wisconsin. She was drawn to the idea of local churches working together for a common goal – to help those that are in need by providing not only the resources they are lacking, but by working with individuals to transform lives in the name of Christ.
Pastor Eric Wenger
Pastor Eric Wenger was introduced to Love INC in 2009 and was encouraged by their compassionate heart. However, he didn't have an opportunity to serve with Love INC until his recent move back to the Wisconsin Rapids area. He is thankful that the timing is now right to join this network of local congregations and leaders who are committed to sharing the love of Christ with our neighbors and invested in multiplying Christ-centered leaders throughout South Wood County and beyond.
