  • Melissa Rodriguez

    Worship Leader //

    Hi! I'm Melissa Rodriguez, the worship leader of Crow River Church. I have the great privilege of leading the musical expression of worship during our Sunday morning services every week. I’m blessed to work alongside some amazing and talented musicians who love playing good music and love Jesus! One of my favorite things is to hear a room full of people sing their hearts out to God. I am married to a man from the Dominican Republic, Jose Luis, and we have two little kids, Leandro and Elena. I am learning to love and serve God in the small, day to day things like changing diapers, cooking meals, and reading children’s books! My husband and I enjoy spending time with family and good friends, especially over good food. We love our church and we’d love to get to know you!

  • Mitch Reaume

    Student Ministries Pastor //

    Hey I'm Mitch Reaume, the Student Ministries Pastor at Crow River Church. I have been at Crow River Church since 2012 and am loving it more than ever. In August of 2014 I was married to my wife, Steph. Neither of us like coffee, and I would personally venture to say that I hate it. We both love to travel, love families, enjoy going for bike rides, and love to simply spend time with people. I love my job for a lot of reasons, but ultimately there is nothing more exciting for me than to see Jesus at work in the lives of students, families, and communities…All of which we see happening at Crow River Church. If I haven’t met you yet, please come and introduce yourself and join our community as we seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus right here in Delano, Rockford, and the surrounding communities.

    Hello! My name is Shelby Dahlheimer, and I am the Children’s Ministry Director at Crow River Church! I love kids ministry because I believe that children are so important to the heart of the Father and I seek to share that love to all children that walk through our doors! A little bit about myself includes that my Husband Jimmy and I live in Delano and own a horse named Socks! I obviously enjoy riding horses, but some other hobbies of mine are basketball, broomball, going to coffee shops with friends, and anything to do with the outdoors! We love Crow River Church and the Delano community and we would absolutely love if you came up to introduce yourself! 

  • Amy Treptau

    Community Life Director //

    Hi there! My name is Amy and I’m the Community Life Director at Crow River Church. I absolutely love my job and am grateful to be able to work alongside such an amazing staff and church family. I am blessed to serve CRC in coordinating events, community organizing/building and administration. My prayer is that as people interact with me, they see a faint reflection of the One who loves them with an everlasting love. Most Sundays you can find me at the information table - I find great joy in meeting new people and helping them get connected to our church. I feel like the luckiest girl on the planet being married to my husband, Kevin and we have three kids that we adore - Logan, Emma & Jack. I love life, laughter and anything that combines peanut butter and chocolate.
