April Fernett - Nursery

April Fernett is a professional childcare specialist who has been caring for our babies and toddlers for 12 years. April's goal is to introduce our children to God's love in their formative years.

Rick Young - Director of Kids Ministry

Rick and Mantha Young have been teaching and discipling our elementary-age children for nearly 30 years. Countless adults and families have experienced their unconditional love and constant encouragement to be all they can be in Christ.

Ashley Waters - Interim Middle School Leader

Ashley Waters stepped into the gap of leadership during the time we have been without a Youth Pastor. His authentic relationships and relevant biblical teaching continue to challenge our

emerging teens to develop a strong faith and love for Christ.
