New Flourish Staff

One way Schweitzer serves our community is through the ministries of Flourish Community Development Corporation (CDC). Recently, Flourish filled two needed staff roles. Katelyn Yoder is now serving as Flourish’s Resource Coordinator. Her main focus is providing resources and creating community in the two vertical communities with whom Flourish partners: Nordic Landing and Y Gardens. Rebecca Jeter also joined the team as the Program Director. Her focus is on researching and planning programs that serve Flourish and the broader Springfield community.

Katelyn is a recent graduate of Missouri State University. She is originally from St. Louis but loves Springfield so much that she decided to stay. Katelyn says her first job out of college is an ideal fit for her passions, experience, and love of social entrepreneurship.

” I am thrilled that I get to build relationships with individuals, understand their needs, and empower them to solve problems and transform their lives! The great commission isn’t just a call to those missionaries living overseas; it is a call on each of our lives to share the love of Christ wherever we are planted. I am excited to see all the people God has for me to encourage in the Flourish community!” – Katelyn

Rebecca joined the Flourish team at the beginning of 2024 and brings over 15 years of non-profit and community relations experience. With a love for people and ministry, she feels called to encourage others to see the power in connection. Rebecca moved to Springfield in 2007 but is originally from a small town called Lonoke, Arkansas.

“My goal each day is to connect someone to a service, a resource, a mission, or their next step. We each have a unique gift. That unique gift, combined with your time and placement in this community right now, means you are bound to fill some voids no one else can fill.” – Rebecca

Rebecca loves talking about Razorback sports, especially baseball. Rebecca is married to her best friend, Jason. They were married on Leap Day 2020 and technically just celebrated their first wedding anniversary. They have four children together as a blended family.
