Director of Children's Ministryoffice: 714-288-4490

In 25 words or so, Describe what you do at St.John's
It is my responsibility to implement ministry opportunities for children from birth to age 5 to fulfill the mission and vision of St. John's Lutheran Church of Connect, Grow & Share.

Tell us a story of how you have seen God moving through your ministry
I am able to see generations of St. John's at work. " Tell your children about it in years to come, and let your children tell their children. Pass the story down from generation to generation." Joel 1:3 We are at the ground level of faith building and it's a great opportunity we are blessed to be a part of.
