John & Mariam Woods

John and Miriam homeschooled their 3 sons for 18 years and during that time INCH was a great encouragement to their family. While their children graduated years ago, they have continued to serve because they believe that homeschooling is the best way for parents to pass on their Christian faith to their children and they believe that MiCHN is a much-needed resource in equipping parents to do so. They are blessed that their children are walking with the Lord! Miriam serves Michigan homeschoolers as the Treasurer and Finance Director for MiCHN. As a couple, they serve on the Board of Directors.

Mike & Missie Potter

Mike and Missie began homechooling when their oldest was 5. After attending orientation for a local Christian school, they realized that they didn't want to send their baby away all day!

They have nine children, 4 biological girls and 5 adopted from foster care.  Missie serves Michigan homschoolers as the Conference Director and Mike serves as the Technology Director for MiCHN. As a couple, they serve on the Board of Directors.
