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.

Get to know Steering... Meet Christi Kokkeler
Kids/Family: I've been married to my Husband Zach for 9 years. We have 3 year old twin boys, Andy & Henry.
Favorite thing to do with my family: We love being outside together. Sometimes we're in our own backyard, but we also love taking day trips to explore new places and show the boys new things!
Where I grew up: I grew up in Eugene, Oregon.... but don't be fooled, we wear orange and black in our house and don't speak of those quacking water fowl!!
Hobbies (what I enjoy doing when a have some time to myself): I like to do crafty things, spend time with friends and play games.
What I enjoy most about MOPS: I love the community!
Why I joined Steering: I wanted to help support a group that had really encouraged me as a new mom. More selfishly, I loved the idea of growing deeper relationships with moms outside of the women at my table. As a stay at home mom, it also gives me a way to feel productive/challenged outside of parenting!
What I am looking forward to this year with MOPS: meeting new friends and our theme! I'm excited to celebrate lavishly, embrace rest & notice goodness with all of you!
