Meet Our Children and Family Pastor
Pastor of Children and Family Ministry
I oversee faith formation of children birth - 5th grade which includes programming for children birth - 5th grade and support and education for parents and families of this same age group. I also work with long range planning as part of the Ministry Lead team of Pastors. I love the variety of opportunities to work with people of all ages in multiple settings. There is never a dull moment growing faith in Jesus! I also love the people who attend and their stories.
