Susan Nussler

Director of Community Life

I was born in Columbia, SC and was blessed to be raised by parents who love the Lord. Growing up my parents not only taught me about Jesus, but their lives were a living example of His love, and grace. As a young girl, sitting in church I would turn my head enough to watch my mom sing. It was in her that I saw Praise, and I’ll never forget the first time I saw my dad early in the morning sitting, Bible open and praying. Attending church was an extension of home, being with family who not only loved each other, but took that love out into the community and on mission wherever led. For fun I would hang out with my dad on his construction jobs. I dreamed of growing up and becoming a builder just like him. And after many years I was blessed to not only work for him, but I too saw that dream come to life.

My favorite verses are Psalm 37:3-5, which says, " Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this.”

In 2012, I felt God leading me to leave my dream and open my heart to His dream. Following Him opened my heart to a passion for his people, those in the church walls and those outside of it. It’s an amazing life, I am so thankful to serve and be apart of the Bride of Christ. I am married to an amazing man, we have three gifts and are blessed to be able to raise two. In 2015, we felt God leading us to Olympia, WA, and our hope is that people we meet would experience the Love of Jesus, because they see Him in us. We are excited to be part of His plans here in Thurston County.
