Gayle Love, Office Manager and Wedding Facilitator

gayle picture for webDotting the i’s and crossing the t’s speaks to Gayle’s affinity for order in administrative matters and has been invaluable in her years of working for non-profits in her native Portland. She picked up skills as a secretary with Portland’s Office of Planning & Development and as a coordinator of volunteers and director of CPR trainings for emergency responders at the American Heart Association, then located just a block from The Old Church. She recalls walking past The Old Church on lunch breaks in the ’80s, thinking that someday she should stop and look inside. Finally, she did. Later, her oldest daughter was married in The Old Church. Gayle also operated a floral business for weddings and events, which gave her more opportunities to visit The Old Church before joining its staff in 2002.
