Moriah Ministries Administrative Staff

IMG_7400Rachel Postma serves in two key areas – ministry and administrative.  She has been a tremendous blessing this past year as she trained as our Supersonic Coordinator and our SERVE Coordinator and she nailed it!  We are so thankful for her organization and ministry skills – a rare combo but she has it!  This season Rachel will be managing and ministering with Supersonic and SERVE Birmingham.  She is Mom Val’s right hand assistant for CareLinc Classic and much more!

Valerie McDaniel (a.k.a. Mom Val) serves alongside Chap Andy assisting with all things administrative.  She is our website creator, social media manager, she assists Chap with ministry development, Val is our CareLinc Classic coordinator and she oversees our communications and organizational needs. As Chap’s wife, she has been part of his ministry story for the past 34 years.  She is “Mom Val” to many GVSU students as well as “Mom” to three amazing McDaniel kiddos and 2 of the best sons-in-law around and she loves being “Grammy” to 4 beautiful tiny people!

M5D_1534Chap Andy McDaniel – Executive Director  Under Andy’s leadership, Moriah Ministries is a vibrant growing ministry, influencing countless students at Grand Valley State University.  Andy developed and directs our monthly Supersonic outreach, touching the lives of hundreds of students at GVSU.  Supersonic is changing the lives of students who never would have considered faith as a priority during their college careers.  Andy directs, trains and oversees all staff and volunteers involved in Moriah Ministries. Andy also developed the annual Moriah Golf Classic, helping to provide a firm financial base for the ministry.

Each year Andy leads GVSU students on service project trips to serve both around the world and right here in the US. Teams have served in the Dominican Republic, offered tornado relief in Tuscaloosa, AL, traveled to China serving orphans with Bring Me Hope, served Nashville, TN providing flood relief and Homestead, Florida twice serving an urban kids ministry called KIX. He also brought a team to serve Appalachia in Asheville, North Carolina.  Andy leads student service teams providing needed services to camps right here in Michigan as well including Camp Roger, Grace Youth Camp, Young Life’s Timber Wolf Lake and Camp Mel Trotter.
