“We receive so much more back than we give,” Glenda Andrews told a standing room only crowd at the Traverse City Government Center on Monday night, as she and her husband Ken were honored with the Sara Hardy Award for humanitarian service.

Dozens of Jubilee House volunteers and patrons, as well as family and friends from Grace attended the event, and many stood to pay tribute to the couple who has headed the Jubilee House ministry for the past eight years. Among them was Father Ed. Emenheiser, former rector of Grace Church who reminisced about the two big challenges he faced during his ministry: building a new church and launching a community outreach program.

“We could not build a sanctuary of worship without completing outreach to the community. Both had to happen. Ken and Glenda were instrumental in launching Jubilee House,” said Emenheiser.

Ken Andrews put it this way: “The responsiblity of a ministry is to live it.”
