Sanae Vaniman

Creative Arts Assistant


Sanae became a Christian in 1989 as a college student in Japan. It was only about 10 years ago, however, when she started studying the Bible more deeply, that she realized being a Christian is serious business. She brings 12 years of experience as a bilingual customer service representative to Valley and loves meeting new people, working with volunteers, and getting to know them. Contact Sanae if you are interested in volunteering with the worship/production team, or providing a Saturday evening meal for volunteers. Email Sanae
