Childrens' Ministry Leader
My name is Christina, I have been married to my husband Robert for 12 years and we have 2 amazing boys Jacob(10) and Joseph (8). I have been in children’s ministry for almost 13 years. I love working with kids and getting to be apart of their spiritual walk with God. There is something so special to me about getting to see that journey take place and having a small part in the most important decision of a persons life. I believe in making disciples and that can start with our children!
