Welcome to WellEquippedVolunteer.com!
THE VERY BEGINNING
I grew up as a pastor’s kid on the prairies. My Mom and Dad love God and have dedicated their lives to serving Him. My parents taught me a lot about loving God and loving people. At 7, I gave my life to Jesus and grew up with a desire to serve God.
After graduating high school, I attended Canadian Bible College (now Ambrose University) where God continued to clarify His call on my life. I graduated with a Bachelor of Religious Education majoring in Christian Education so I could work with kids in a church setting. I met my husband while at Bible College and we’ve embarked on many adventures together!
We live in Winnipeg Manitoba.
I LOVE WORKING WITH CHILDREN!
I have served in large churches and small churches, in a volunteer capacity and in a professional (paid) capacity. I’ve worked in churches with hundreds of children and even taught Sunday School with only a couple of kids in the seats!
Along the way, I’ve served in the nursery, taught Sunday School to all ages, volunteered in and directed VBS’s, volunteered in community children’s programs, designed and served in mid-week club programs and summer day camps, and developed missions programs and projects.
I am passionate about Jesus and kids and the people who work with kids in the church. I want to help empower children’s ministry volunteers – especially those who work in small and rural churches. You give so much of your time and love to this important work and I want to help you become more effective.
I’d love it if you would join me on your journey as a children’s ministry volunteer. Bookmark this blog and come back to it often: I’m going to provide free resources and ideas for you and your fellow children’s ministry volunteers!
