Kids Pastor

Sarah and her family have been attending TLC since November of 2015. Through homeschooling her 3 daughters and having their curriculum centered on God, this experience has overflowed into a passion for kid’s ministry. Sarah has a heart for helping children know that they are loved, valued and accepted and she is honored that God has given her the opportunity to do that at TLC. Sarah loves coming to church every Sunday, it’s her favorite day of the week! Sarah’s hope is to lead kids to have their foundation secured in the saving grace of Christ and to be encouraged to truly follow His Commission to every believer, regardless of our age.

Sarah is currently enrolled in MNSOM working towards her Pastoral credentialing.
