Mary Hardin - Church Administrative Assistant (The Secretary)
Mary joined our staff in November of 2019. She and her husband, Jim, met as high school juniors in New Albany, Indiana. As young adults, they both came to accept Jesus as their Savior and were baptized shortly after. Moving several times in their first few years of marriage they settled in the Madison area with their first child in 1990. In 1992 they moved to the Ryker’s Ridge community where they joined RRBC. When all three of their children were attending elementary school, she joined the RRBC staff in 2002. In 2005 to 2008 Mary, Jim, and their two youngest children moved overseas as Jim joined an expansion project team for his employer. After being home again for 6 years, Mary and Jim had the opportunity from the same employer to return overseas for another three years. They returned home again to the Ryker’s Ridge church and community in 2017. They now have three grandchildren. Mary serves in several areas in our church ministries and is excited to be part of our staff again.
