Rebecca Miller (Ms. Becca) was born in Ohio but moved to sunny Naples, Florida at the young age of 2, so she considers Naples her home. She is one of three sisters and grew up in this church. Her grandparents and parents were very active in the church during her adolescent years. Ms. Becca, her mom, and two other sisters used to sing on Sunday mornings to Sandy Patty and her dad taught bible quizzing. She was very active in her youth group. She moved to Orlando for a few years but quickly realized it was not the place for her and moved back home to Naples and have been here ever since. She works full-time at a golf and country club in town and has for the past 15 years. She is also obtaining her Accounting and Business Management degrees part-time. She has had a passion for kids since she was old enough to hold one. She is eager to lead the children of Naples Naz to the Lord and have a lot of fun along the way. Please reach out to Ms. Becca if you are interested in volunteering in Children’s Ministries.
