"It is my privilege and honor to serve the Lord as the leader of our Children's Ministry Programs. Christian Assembly is blessed to have a team of dedicated volunteers, who are passionate in their love for God and about His purpose for our children.

We are dedicated to cultivating and encouraging spiritual life in children, in partnership with their parents/guardians and congregation. Our goal is to nurture a spiritual hunger for God, an awareness of His presence and a love for His Word. We strive to teach our children to live out the implications of the Gospel. We thank God for providing us the opportunity to know and love your children. We are continually blessed, as a result, and we celebrate what He is doing in and through each and every one of them!

If you’re new to Christian Assembly and I haven’t had a chance to meet you, please stop me in passing so we can introduce ourself!"
