Janis lives with her husband, Brian, and they have three grown children: Austin, Peyton, and Westin.

Bill Parr - Elementary Coordinator

Bill Parr serves as the Elementary Coordinator at Woodland Heights.

Though lovingly known as Lil' Bill, don't let his nickname fool you. His tall stature is tamed by his fun, easygoing demeanor and bright and wild Hawaiian shirts.

His excitement for teaching kids is contagious and his penchant for telling stories keeps the kids engaged.

When he's not helping at Woodland Heights, more than likely he can be found at one of his favorite places: Hanging Rock Christian Camp.
