Dawn Michel

Dawn Michel is the Director of Finance at First EPC.  She joined the staff in December 2015.  Her job includes taking care of all the money that comes in to the church, preparing and making deposits, recording pledges, paying the bills, recording and reporting the church financial reports, taking care of all accounts receivable and accounts payable and purchasing for the church.

She grew up in Tipton and graduated from Tipton High School. She has been married to Bruce for about 26 years (there’s a cool story that you should ask her about sometime) and they have two children (Caleb – who graduated from Purdue but is actually an I.U. fan and lives in Bloomington and Leah – who will finish her Elementary Education degree in December 2017 from Ball State University.)

She has traveled out of the country only once on a cruise to the Bahamas.

Dawn’s favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 3:5&6.
