Founder of In Motion Ministries
Missions Consultant and Leadership Development
As well as being a full-time teacher, Norma spent years training youth teams and organizing and leading these teams on mission trips throughout the United States. In 1986 Norma officially founded what is now known as In Motion Ministries. The first team went to England, opening the door for the many teams since that have gone to more than 50 nations. In 1996 her son, Seth, became the CEO; but Norma remains an active staff member. She takes great joy in knowing that in addition to the fact that the Good News of God’s love is being taken to the nations, each team member has their own life changed as well. Norma holds Bachelor Degrees in Music Education and Elementary Education and a Master of Music Education from the University of Northern Colorado. She is an ordained minister and a published author.
Norma’s husband, Richard, has been her partner in making all of this work. He has served as a team leader and was one of the original members of the IMM Board of Trustees. His quiet background work and support have been an important part of the establishment and well being of IMM. Rich earned both B.S. and M.S. degrees in Agricultural Economics at Colorado State University. He is a U.S. Army veteran and an ordained minister.
