ABOUT US

CRYSTAL HENDERSON

Bend Family Programs Director

As a supportive wife to Jonathan, Senior Pastor at Solid Rock Community Church, and a mother of 5 beautiful daughters; Emily, Gracie, Callie, and twins Audrey and Bailey, my joy is creating learning opportunities for each of my children to watch the development of their God gifted talents and strengths.

I grew up in Lebanon, Oregon and have resided in the Willamette Valley unitl moving to Bend in 2015. As a former Civil Engineer and consultant for municipalities, I have over 10 years of experience in site and infrastructure development and 10 years of hands on training, caring, and readying children for success. I love a good challenge and creating opportunities for individuals and communities to unite in a cause bigger than oneself.

LINDSAY BIDWELL

Bend Preschool Teacher

Hello my name is Lindsay Ann Bidwell I grew up in Los Gatos, California but I have lived in the Bend area for almost 17 years now. I moved to Oregon because of my love for the outdoors and horses. I worked at a dude ranch in Bend for many summers where I met my husband.

I have two children of my own, Noah and Paisley. My husband of works on a cattle ranch in Brothers, Oregon. Our family enjoys helping and learning about all aspects of ranching.

In 2006 I attended Eastern Oregon University in LaGrande, to get my masters degree in teaching education. I got into teaching because I enjoy the curiosity and enthusiasm in children and decided that I wanted to be a part of their learning. They are always so eager and excited to learn and explore their minds. I love that children are always willing to dive right in and learn something new.
