  • audrey cox

    director of youth and family ministry

    I am honored to be saying hello as your new Director of Youth and Family Ministry! In 2007, I received my master’s degree in Children, Youth, and Family Ministry from Luther Seminary in St. Paul and moved to Arizona! My husband and I love to hike, run, volunteer, and take on new projects and challenges. We are a family of six: Hannah, Hailey, and Hayden are Tony's girls that I have the honor of being stepmom to; and our daughter Avery. I was born and raised in Michigan which makes me a pretty avid sports fan. I'm a lover of music...all kinds! You'll probably catch me singing around church at some point...even if it's just rockin' out to a good Adele song in my office. It's important to me to be authentic...so I look forward to getting to know all of you. The real you. And growing in faith and community together. I can tell God is up to some amazing things here. I am thankful to be joining the team.

    preschool director

    I have considered the Prince of Peace community ‘home’ for the past ten years. During that time, I have served in many capacities at Prince of Peace: Pre-K teacher, two’s teacher, Assistant Director and now Director.I have a love and passion for working with children and their families. I feel blessed and humbled to have the opportunity to lead our amazing staff and support our children and families. I am a Scottsdale/Paradise Valley native and I have a deep love for this area. I have three beautiful daughters. As a family, we love spending time outdoors, going to movies, watching football and playing board games. When I have a minute to myself, I enjoy reading, crocheting, hiking and gardening. I look forward to many more years serving the Prince of Peace community!
