Elaine Light Hood was born in Rolla, Missouri in 1983. The daughter of a home missionary, Sister Hood has spent her life involved in almost every aspect of ministry from the ground up. As she has often said, “The only things I’ve never done in church are to preach and be the Church Secretary.” She is a graduate of the University of Missouri – Rolla where she obtained her B.A. in History and Missouri State Teaching Certification. She worked for a period as a public school teacher leaving that position to return to UMR as a marketing specialist and international recruiter. Her travels in Asia and Europe heavily impacted her life and burden for the work of the Kingdom.
Along with being a housewife, Sister Hood is also an ASL interpreter and a musician while also driving a school bus part time.
