Full Name: Erin DeLassus
About you and your family: My husband, Steve DeLassus, works at ArcBest and both of us own The Monkey House. We have 2 boys, Jackson (12) and Dallas (8) that have attended Grace their entire lives. We have been with Grace for 15 years and love it. Steve and I host a Marriage Life Group and are very involved in the Marriage Ministry here at Grace. We love helping the church and the community and love ‘doing life’ with families of the same spiritual values.
Ministry Position: Grace Children’s Ministry Director
Life-Changing Moment: The first thing that pops into my mind is when I got married. We were on our honeymoon when I looked over and saw a ring on Steve’s finger. I was MARRIED! It didn’t seem like I was old enough to be married even though we had graduated college.
Previous Job/occupation: I worked at ABF Freight Systems as an Industrial Engineer and wasn’t quite what I wanted. I then took over Grace Place Preschool Director position for 4 years working with the babies before we started The Monkey House. Now I feel called to help build upon the Children’s Ministry here at Grace.
Favorite Food: Probably anything with carbs! Mexican, Italian, 😉
Pet Peeve: Lazy people or people that don’t give or help others.
In My Spare Time: What is spare time?
Birthplace: Fort Smith, AR
Hero: I don’t have one in particular but I would say anyone that has helped mold me into the person I am today. I thank so many for leading me to Christ and making me the hard worker I am. I have been blessed beyond measure with my upbringing and opportunities I have been given.
If you had an extra $10 what would you buy: Probably food or Diet Coke!
