Carrie Gerrild - Family Ministries Pastor
Carrie finds life full and exciting as a mother and home school teacher of four children. She firmly believes that the home is God's "discipleship center" or His perfect small group! The home is where faith is fleshed out-- where children learn that FAITH is living and active, and not just a program. Because of this, she finds working beside her husband in the Children's Ministry of the church the best job on the planet!! She loves to inspire and equip parents to do amazing things for God as the primary spiritual mentors of their own children. She seeks to assist them in this God given role by working with a team of capable and loving volunteers in providing top quality children's ministry. She sees the church and the home as a unique partnership -- working together to raise up the next generation to love God and to love people! Besides that, she just plain LOVES kids! Children's ministry is the perfect place for her to exercise her passions for creativity, fun, sincerity, and child - like faith! She often feels she learns just as much from the children about how to love God sincerely as they ever learn from her.
In her free time, (which there never is enough of at this season in her life), Carrie enjoys reading, singing, acting and making friends. She also enjoys being with her family. One of their favorite family past times is camping, which they enjoy a couple of times every year.
