Connie Mire was born and raised in Louisiana and attended high school with her husband Carl. She resided in Galvez with her husband and two children, Chad & Tonya from 1977 until 1986. Due to financial hardships Carl came to the East Coast in search of work. In Carl’s absence God did a work in Connie’s heart. She gave her life to Jesus in 1987 and there was no turning back. As soon as the children finished their school year, she and the children drove up to New Jersey to make it their new home, along with Carl.
Connie’s favorite thing to do is cook, if someone else helps clean up the mess. J She was very content being a stay at home Mama. She loved raising her children and even helped babysit neighborhood children until they moved to NJ. Having sleepovers for her children was one of her favorite things to do, with friends and family. She loved volunteering at the children’s school and could be found there every Thursday selling popcorn and juice for the PTA. (God’s training)
Little did she know God was using her time to train her for her future. She started out working in The Rock Church Sunday School in Nursery, 1st & 2nd, 5th & 6th, Jr High, & Sr High. She landed in the Primary class where she loves teaching the Pre-School, Kindergarten and 1st Graders. It’s the students who really end up teaching the teachers all about the fruits of the spirit. J She presently loves serving as The Rock Church Administrator, since 1998.
