Courtney Richards is the Minister for Congregational Growth at Geist Christian Church in Indianapolis, IN. After attending to the details of her ministry (and sometimes before and during!), you can find her divining AND detailing the fun of a dance floor and the groove of a bass line (she's blessed with lots of local musician pals), being Auntie Rev to her friends' kids, or engrossed in a book, movie, or chocolate (and sometimes all three).
