Joe Budish

Junior High Lead Associate


Joe’s first experience with ministry leadership came during high school when he led a 3rd-5th grade Sunday School small group. Early in college he discovered he loved working with junior high students. Joe is a unique blend of silly and serious and is a self-described "cool nerd" who liked math class. When he is not hanging out with junior high students, he enjoys disc golf, reading, playing the guitar, and improv comedy. Email Joe


Dan Rozga

High School Lead Associate

Dan Rozga is the High School Associate for Student Ministries.  “God saved Dan at a summer camp when he was in 8th grade and he has never been the same. Some of Dan's favorite things are: the Green Bay Packers, writing, Ben Rector, traveling, Seinfeld, listening to podcasts, and watching the Chicago Bears lose. Dan graduated from Trinity International University and truly believes that the best days for Valley High School Ministry are still to come!”  Email Dan




Mackenzie Brown

High School Lead Associate


She will be taking on the role of High School Associate.  Mackenzie grew up in Annandale, Minnesota with her parents and younger brother. She attended Annandale Evangelical Free Church until graduating from high school and moving to Ohio for college.   Mackenzie graduated from Cedarville University in 2014 with an English degree and minors in Creative Writing and Bible. Since graduating, she has been managing her cousin's ice cream shop in Plymouth, MN which has been an incredibly fun, rewarding, and shaping.

Mackenzie is excited to join our youth ministry team and begin discipling the next generation! Her favorite aspect of being a manager at her current job has been mentoring and encouraging high school employees. God has been preparing Mackenzie for this new role before she was even aware of it. We are eager to have her partner with us to further God’s Kingdom and pour into the lives of teens.
