Newberg MOPS

Welcome to Newberg MOPS!

MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers. We believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why MOPS connects moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find our identity by journeying alongside one another.

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. We know it’s a little confusing so let’s just stick with “MOPS.”

We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world.

Meet Your Steering Team - Christi Kokkeler

Name- Christi Kokkeler

Position- Registration

Kids/Family- I've been married to Zach for 8 years and we have twin boys who just turned two- Henry and Andy. 

Where did you grow up- Eugene, Oregon

What did you do before kids -I have my bachelors degree in Education and taught in various elementary school settings before having Andy and Henry. 

Hobbies- I like anything crafty, playing games and trying new restaurants. 

Favorite MOPS memory- Nothing specific-- I loved the community of our table group last year. It felt like we were really committed to making connections and building each other up as moms. I always really looked forward to our time together! 

Why did you join steering? I've loved MOPS as a new mom, so giving back to a group I've felt so blessed by was an easy decision!

What are you most looking forward to for this year of MOPS- Two glorious hours every month where no one will try to climb me with their pointy little elbows, eat from my plate or wipe any number of things on my pants- I hope! I'm also really excited to meet some new moms (and their kiddos!) and hopefully learn a trick or two from some moms more seasoned than myself-- potty training two boys is on the horizon... I'll take your advice and your prayers :)
