Zac and Dani Christensen
After 14 years of participating fully in life at Plymouth, Zac and Dani are looking forward to checking the Member box on the red Friendship Pad. Zac has taught for Des Moines Public Schools for more than 20 years, almost all at Perkins Elementary. Dani is a former journalist and current Teacher-Librarian for Johnston Schools, which they both attended many years ago. They live in Grimes with their children, Ella (15), who can be seen making beautiful music with the Matins, and Charlie (9), who enjoyed his first year in the Treble Choir and can otherwise be found dominating the activities in the children’s bulletin. Zac and Dani want all the other Attend Regularly folk to know you need not wait as long as they did to officially make Plymouth your church home.
