What is TeamKID and it’s purpose?
TeamKID is a fun, high-energy ministry that encourages kids to know Jesus Christ and to grow in a relationship with Him. That’s why TeamKID ends with KID. KID stands for Kids In Discipleship! All parts of TeamKID-- Bible stories, Scripture memory, mission activities, life application, and recreation games--connect to teach life lessons to kids. TeamKID happens on Wednesday nights, 6:00pm-7:30pm, 4yrs-5 grade in our Kids area.
My husband, Huey, and I were born and raised here in Shreveport. We’ve been married for 15 years and have three wonderful children, Gordon (12), Jack (10), and Kate (8).
I grew up in a Christian home with my parents and two younger sisters. I am thankful to say that the Lord has graciously placed me in a family that has nourished my love for Christ and the work of the church.
I made a profession of faith in 1989. Little did I know that even at the young age of six, God was molding my life for ministry. In 2001, I publicly professed a call to missions. I wasn’t quite sure what that meant for my life, but knew I was surrendering to His call on my life. Since then, I have fallen in love with children’s ministry and have seen the hand of the Lord work in so many ways to guide me to this ministry.
This year in Children’s Ministry we are focused on the verse 1 Corinthians 15:58. “My dear friends, stand firm and don’t be shaken. Always keep busy working for the Lord. You know that everything you do for him is worthwhile.”
My prayer is that the children in this ministry will grow to have an unshakeable faith. Please join me in prayer for these children and families, that we may grow in wisdom and faith this year.
