Preschool Staff

Preschool Director
Stephanie Gore

My family (Rick, Shayla & Lukas) and I moved to Arizona in 2018 from Maryland.  We found Light of Christ Church and fell in love with it immediately because it's all about Jesus and serving others.  I also have the privilege of serving the amazing Preschool Team and the Preschool Families.

Lauren Ritter

I have been blessed enough to teach Preschool since 2014. My heart and passion lead me to explore and learn with the
children through life skills, communication, and Gods love. My husband and I moved from Northern California to Arizona in
2019. We enjoy going on walks with our pups, cooking together, and are expecting our first little one October 2020!

My name is Diana Peterson.  I enjoy helping the

children at Light of Christ Preschool.  I have a degree in Physics from the University of Baghdad. I also serve as a Language Interpreter for AFLS as needed.  My husband, David, myself and our son James moved from Iowa to Arizona in 2018.  Our family loves the Arizona weather and spending time hiking, swimming, and travelling when possible. The Lord has blessed us to be here, and given me the opportunity to assist in teaching the children.  “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Matthew 7:12

My name is Katy Bellack!  My family and I have been attending Light of Christ Church for 5 years.  I have been working with the Preschool for a year and a half now and I have loved every minute of it!  Last year I was able to work with the 4-5 year old class three days a week.  I'm so excited to be able to work five days a week this year!  I can't wait to work with this years wonderful students by teaching them about the Lord and helping them learn everything they need to know!  Counting down the days until I can meet these amazing kids!



It is the philosophy and firm belief of Light of Christ Christian Preschool that each child is uniquely created by God with individual gifts and abilities.  It is our overall goal to encourage the growth of the "whole child" through each one's spiritual, social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development.
