ASSISTANT DIRECTOR OF CHILDREN’S MINISTRY
I grew up in Lancaster Ohio and graduated from Lancaster High school. I was raised in a Christian home by Godly parents and grandparents. My grandfather was one of the pastors at the church that I attended most of my church life. My grandmother was the prayer warrior of my family, which has caused me to always pray about everything. I went to college at OU-C for deaf interpreting but started working as a manager in a retail store. In 2004, I married my high school sweetheart Nate. God started really working in my life and moved me into a management position at a Christian bookstore. All the while, me and my husband were teaching at LCC on Sunday in children’s ministry and serving on Wednesday in Grapple (4th-6th grade ministry).
In 2012, God opened up a door for me to come on staff at LCC as Children’s Ministry Assistant, and I love every minute of it! In July 2013, my husband and I were blessed by adopting our first son, Brantley. Now we have a child of our own to teach about Jesus.
My Hope For Lancaster Community Church
Just as I was raised, I want the kids here at LCC to really understand that God absolutely loves them and He hears their every prayer. I want to encourage every kid to become little prayer warriors! God has also given me a heart for 4th-6th graders. I love this age because it is such a different age–they are trying to figure themselves out but they still want to have a kid’s heart. I want them to always know that God made them perfectly the way they are!
I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.” Luke 18:17
