Introducing Carissa Larson

Meet the newest member of the NWH staff, Director of Communication & Connection, Carissa Larson!

Once a young girl who cried her first day of Kindergarten because she was so scared to meet new people now finds herself in a role she is very passionate about – a role ALL ABOUT meeting new people!!

For over 6 years, Carissa has called NWH and Corvallis home, serving in a variety of capacities, and she SO excited to now be serving in a more day-to-day role as the Director of Communication & Connection!

In this role, Carissa manages all the communications for NWH, oversees church events and Sunday services, helping coordinate many of our incredible volunteers, and comes alongside individuals (like YOU) to get them plugged into opportunities here at NWH!!

Behind the scenes, Carissa and her husband, Travis, lead the Young Marrieds Community Group together and love being a part of that growing community! Together, they love exploring, enjoying a great cup of black coffee, and running!
