Your Friends at Fishbone
Tom & Sandy Bowser
Tom and Sandy Bowser are the founders of Fishbone. They began their journey in 2002 with the desire to love children and bring them the gospel of Jesus Christ. Many times they’ve felt ill-equipped, but Tom and Sandy put all of their faith and trust in God to work through them. Since the beginning, God has shown himself faithful by equipping them and providing everything the ministry has needed in order to make it flourish. They now run the ministry while caring for their family and as Tom continues to work a full time job. They continue to build relationships and serve our neighbors. You can find Sandy heading up the Thursday night elementary school ministry or keeping our facilities neat and clean. Tom is usually having fun with friends and neighbors or working on a project in the community.
David & Ally Gould
David and Ally Gould are our donation-supported full-time ministry leaders. Ally began volunteering with Fishbone in 2006 and David joined her shortly after they met in 2013. They began working with Fishbone full time in 2017 and now trust God to provide for their family as they answer the call he has given them. Since they stepped out in faith, God has continuously shown himself faithful! The couple live right in the neighborhood with their little family. This has created a beautiful presence, allowing God to work deeper into the lives of our children and families. David and Ally head up the ministry’s youth group and they also run the after school program and several other programs throughout the year.
Our volunteers are a wonderful group of people who teach, play with, and spend time with our kids and families. We also have many kind and loving church groups who come to serve meals weekly, monthly, or during our summer picnics. Fishbone would not be complete without the love that our volunteers pour into our kids and families!
