Dianna PriceAdministrative Secretary

In January 2023, I started working as an administrative assistant for Southridge and see my role here as a calling from God.  God uses me as a support staff member to encourage and aid the Pastors and committee members to accomplish goals for Southridge. It is an honor to serve and look forward to seeing what God is doing in each of our lives.

I love my family and have three sons, six grandchildren, and six step-grandchildren. Recently, we kinda adopted a couple and their two children into our family.  You might see me smiling in church as I hold their baby girl, Eli.

Over the years, I have taught numerous Bible classes including children and adults, many at WOW (Women On Wednesdays), held retreats, and spoken at a few conferences. As a teacher, I have probably grown more than the ladies in my classes. In case you didn’t know, I love Jesus and love speaking the truth about His love and grace!
