Janel Coburn

Janel and her husband Lars work with the Canyon View Church of Christ where Lars serves as the Youth Minister. Lars and Janel celebrated their first wedding anniversary on March 7th of this year. They met at Northwest Christian University in Eugene, Oregon where they dated for a year before becoming engaged.

Janel graduated from Northwest Christian University in 2014 where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Communications. She complete her first year of full time teaching this year. Although she cannot be outspoken about her faith in the classroom, she hopes to shine the light of Jesus on her students and encourage them to defy their circumstances.

Janel has travelled twice to Cambodia for mission trips, with Lars in tow on the first trip. Janel is passionate about the women and children trapped in the sex trafficking industry which she saw first-hand in Cambodia. Both mission trips were with the Agape International Missions (AIM) organization whose main goal is to provide community support and rescues in Svay Pak.

Janel enjoys exploring the outdoors in San Diego, taking road trips, going to the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park, and relaxing at home with family.
