Chairman of the Board
Joe Ruesch is currently serving as the chairman of the Board at RCCC. Baptized in 1991, he has been a member of the church since 2007. In the past he has also served as a deacon for the church. He has been a business owner in the Wisconsin Rapids area for 40 years now in ventures as diverse as rental properties, dry walling, and cranberries. He and his wife have six kids and 15 grandchildren gracing their ever expanding family. When he’s not working or serving at RCCC, he enjoys hunting, snowmobiling, and spending time with his grandchildren.
Colleen Ferkey servers as RCCC’s Board secretary. If her last name sounds familiar, it’s because she is married to Roy Ferkey, one of the elders here at RCCC. (You may also recognize it from their home building business, Ferkey Builders.) She and Roy have been married for 30 years and have attended RCCC for their entire marriage. In addition to serving as Board secretary, she also plays rhythm guitar and sings on one of RCCC’s worship teams as well as serving in the children’s ministry. Hobby-wise Colleen has a blast crocheting and she loves to read.
Randy Moody currently servers as treasurer. He started attending RCCC in 2016 and began serving at the church as a deacon. He subsequently served as the chairman of the RCCC Board. Randy was raised in the Nekoosa area where he still resides. He has been married for 40 years to his wife Sherry and they are very blessed to have five daughters, five son-in-laws and eleven grandchildren. Randy retired (or so he thought) in 2019. Outside of church he also serves his community as the chairman for the Town of Port Edwards. Randy likes old cars, old tractors, die-cast vehicles, and a good joke or prank.
Loganne Smith serves as the Administrative Assistant at RCCC while she also attends school at NorthCentral Technical College for Sign Language Interpretation. Her duties at RCCC are quite eclectic—from video editing, to random “techy” questions, to organizing the details of various outreach endeavors. When the church (or school) isn’t throwing another random assignment at her, you will find her reading a good book or taking a walk with her dog.
Children’s Program Coordinator
Clea Peaslee currently serves as RCCC’s Children’s Program Coordinator. She and her husband Elijah started attending in 2020, and felt immediately like they had found a second home. Clea graduated on their wedding day in June 2021 with her Bachelors and currently works for the School District of Nekoosa as a middle school teacher. Her favorite math fact is 6×6=36, her favorite mode of communication is face to face, and her favorite food is usually sushi (except on Tuesdays).
