Why we do what we do:

I have been involved with Youth Ministries, in one way or another, my whole life. I have learned from generations before me that if you provide a quality space for the youngest members of the church, bringing in parents and grandparents is inevitable. My parents and grandparents have devoted their lives to young people. Their legacies are known by many. I just hope to bring a fraction of their knowledge and skill mixed with my own creativity to this ministry. Being a young adult myself and having young children, I have a strong desire and vision to see their relationship with Christ grow. While that relationship is not just about events, they learn a lot and come to enjoy the church family when they can see that they belong. I know that every parent and caregiver wants the same for their children. Creating fun and exciting events is what I enjoy. I need a team to bring my vision of TOP’s Children’s Ministries to life, and I know that together we can make it happen.

I look forward to learning more about God’s character. It has been my experience, so far, that the more involved I am with children, the more aware I am of my need for Christ. I bow even lower, until prostrate, before Him to understand Him as Father.

Winning souls for the Kingdom…..

With every child, we can see the excitement in their eyes as they discover their Creator. Not only are we reaching them, but we are creating an atmosphere where they will want to invite their friends and their families. Every event, every program, every heart talked to is one more way to bring littles to Christ.

Verse:

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.”

Proverbs 22:6

“Jesus called the children to him and said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.’

Luke 18:16
