Children's Ministry Director


Hello!  I have been working in the Children's Ministry at TCBC since 2018 and am now honored to serve as Children's Ministry Director.  I feel called and equipped for this position and am so glad God chose me for this role.  I am originally from Pennsylvania and have lived in the South since 2005.  I am married to my wonderful husband and we have four girls ages preschool thru elementary.  I desire to help children learn about our amazing God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit and to develop a personal relationship with Him at a young age.  

Our family verse is Proverbs 3: 5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path."  I am so blessed to have seen God direct me and my family's path when we trust in HIM!   

I look forward to meeting you and your children soon!
