What are your responsibilities at Eastbrook?
Overseeing all ministry related to NextGen Ministry (birth through college-age), coaching a team of leaders, encouraging parents, developing volunteers.
What do you love about what you do?
Raising children is a universal experience, so kids are a natural connecting point. They bring together people of different backgrounds and generations. I love the challenge of creating a community among this diversity of people and encouraging them as they parent their own kids or work with others here at church.
